Imagine you're hiking up a mountain. You've been going for quite a while, and you're getting tired. Rather than giving up because it's hard you decide to keep going, knowing that the view at the top is worth the effort.
When you're part way up the mountain you can't see how far you've come or how far you still have to go. And then you encounter a large tree that's in your path. You ponder for a moment. You could give up and turn around. You could climb over the tree (not very practical). Or you could re-route yourself around the tree. Sure, it might take longer than you predicted, and you might even have to backtrack a little bit to get back on the path. But, again, the view at the top is worth it.
Recovery is like climbing a mountain. It's a long, hard, often frustrating journey to the top with barriers and detours along the way. But I promise you, the view is totally worth it.
