One workable definition of recovery is to restore to a certain condition. Oftentimes people look at recovery as trying to be the person they were before their problems started, but the inherent difficulty in that process is that we are constantly changing, so rather than trying to be who we were before, maybe we should focus on redefining ourselves in the present.

Recovery may look very different for some people compared to others.
