9. It’s easy to reflect on the past and get stuck on what you should have done differently. Sure, there are constructive lessons to be taken from past failures. However, hyper-focusing on what you wish you could have changed can lead to unhelpful negative thought patterns. You may think “Had I never tried heroin, I wouldn’t have gotten addicted”. Or “If I had gotten sober ten years ago, my life wouldn’t be such a mess”. Sure, that’s a possibility, but this way of thinking causes unproductive shame spirals, paralyzing us from taking action now. Although we can’t change the past, we do have a say in what our futures will look like. Focusing on what you haven’t done will only draw you away from accomplishing new things. Don’t let your past stop you from getting help today. There is no better time than now to invest in a better future. Contact a treatment center to learn more about recovery options.
