BECAUSE I'M WORTH IT
A first shared element that opened up the discussion about me-time is its connection to self-worth and self-acceptance. When in recovery, an important part is (re)discovering who you are and who you want to be. The participants call it a challenge to accept a more positive outlook on themselves as an individual when drug use undermined their self-worth. They share the idea that it takes time to (learn to) love themselves again and to feel that they deserve to build the life they want, because they are worth it.
