    The woman who runs this dbt group I'm in said this to us the other day, and it made a big impact on me. "Nothing changes if nothing changes."

    I sit around every day, doing the same things, thinking the same thoughts, expecting my life to suddenly feel worth living. But "nothing changes if nothing changes."

    I thought it would be cool to have a thread where we could commit to eachother little changes we are trying to make in our lives to help steer ourselves towards recovery. It can be anything really, it doesn't have to be big. Just something different, because honestly.. I think most people here can say whatever they're doing now isn't working!


    • I commit to leaving my house at least once a week for a social outing.
    • Except for under unusual circumstances (sick, out late with family/friends), I commit to waking up by at least 10 am every day.
    • I commit to eating breakfast every day (it can be small, just something!)

    Wow I like this post!
    I commit to doing more towards being the child of Yahweh I am supposed to be.
