Our mind is a powerful tool, wield it well. On the other hand, it can break up in a second. While recovery can last a lifetime, the experience itself has potential to make you more in tune with the universe.
Mental healing is not about fixing broken things to resemble their precursory form. I like to think it's more about adapting and enhancing. Every day I see people who are obviously stuck in their views of themselves. It's a state of mental decay that will kill you, slowly and without a warning.
