Recovery is a process

Uhm how perfect. It’s a process 💖

via Insight & Inspiration.

I know a few people celebrating big steps in their recovery right now. Now matter where you are in your own recovery process, it’s all big & important.

 

I’m including here this important message from Hood Habesha :

HEALING IS REAL WORK. HEALING IS REAL WORK. HEALING IS REAL WORK. PRIORITIZING “PRODUCTIVITY” OVER HEALING AND WELL-BEING AND SURVIVAL IS CAPITALIST, AND SHAMING PEOPLE INTO BURNING THEMSELVES OUT IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR ORGANIZATION AFLOAT (KEEP YOUR FOUNDATION BASED PAYCHECK COMING) AND THEN DISCARD THEM IS FUCKED UP. SO MANY COMMUNITY ORGANIZING SPACES ARE ABLEIST AND ARE INACCESSIBLE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH TRAUMA THE SPACES “INTEND” TO PREVENT OR BRING JUSTICE TO. SO ONCE AGAIN… HEALING IS REAL WORK AND WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF LOOKING DOWN YOUR NOSE AT FOLKS WHO CANNOT GET AS MUCH “DONE” AS YOU… MAYBE YOU OUGHT TO CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE, OR SHARE HOW YOU GOT TO THE HEALED SPACE YOU ARE AT, AND EVALUATE IF YOU MIGHT ONLY VALUE *YOURSELF* ON WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE WORLD… REGARDLESS OF THE COSTS TO YOUR OWN BEING OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS. THINGS I HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY…QUOTE FROM TUMBLR ROSAS-SYLVESTRES

 

I see so much of this and it’s important for everyone to hear and acknowledge. If you follow me on Twitter, I swear you’ll see me rant nearly daily about things tied into this. (My gratitude to my Twitizens who listen patiently )

  1. So…I might have been in tears by the end of this. The funny thing is I know you weren’t writing about me, so I can only imagine how many people this is speaking to. Damn. You’re good.
