You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.
any tips on finding motivation? sometimes i feel like i'm just going nowhere..
i think i can understand how you feel. kind of like you’re in limbo right? a little further from where you started but nowhere near your end goal. i remember feeling this way before i started medical school, like every day was routine and i wasn’t moving forward. but later i realized that i actually accomplished a lot during that time, it just didn’t seem that way because i was looking at my life wayyy too closely. take a step back and try to draw motivation from the small accomplishments you make every day. and remember: enjoy the journey, the destination isn’t the only thing that can make you happy
