I feel sad that I am unlikely to reach my full potential.
Most of my time and energy is spent maintaining stability or surviving.
I also need to invest resources as I need to avoid a relapse or a step back into unhelpful symptoms or behaviours.
I have few resources left over to further ambition.
This saddens me as I would have liked to achieve things.
I would have wished at one time to explore my gifts, and perhaps feel a sense of fulfilment at some point.
