In your eating disorder recovery, do you feel alone and like no one truly understands?
We get it.
This is why we created Love Notes, a podcast on The Recovery Warrior Shows that helps you feel less alone and challenges beliefs that hold you back in your recovery. In this audio affirmation track, we give you inspiration to take off the armor and let others in to support you and guide you. You don’t have to fight the eating disorder alone.
Being Supported and Guided in Eating Disorder Recovery
When it comes to getting better, getting the right help and support is essential.
So, if you’re ready to take that step and get some extra support on your journey, maybe it’s time to think about joining the Courage Club.
The Courage Club is a great place for practical strategies, accountability, and active support.
It’s also a great way to connect with other warriors who understand and want to cheer you on. Fellow Member, Joni O’Donnell joined years ago and is now an intuitive eating counselor helping others make peace with food. Here’s how getting the right support changed her life:
“Becoming part of the Courage Club community felt like someone opening their arms and welcoming me in. All of a sudden, I found myself surrounded by a sea of people who had been through the same struggles, felt the same way, and shared similar experiences. It was incredibly validating and comforting, we all connected through our common journeys with food and body image. What made it even more special was that it was a safe space, which, for me, was the most significant part. It wasn’t just about finding group support, it was about finding a safe place.“
Navigating Recovery Together
They say there’s strength in numbers, and when it comes to recovery, this couldn’t be truer.
Navigating your recovery journey with others by your side can make a world of difference.
It’s about connecting with people who understand, empathize, and genuinely want to see you succeed.
And it’s not just about recovery; it’s about creating a space where you can grow, flourish, and redefine your relationship with food and yourself.
