Setting boundaries and learning to say no is critically important during recovery. Being assertive, openly expressing yourself and setting boundaries takes away a lot of ED's power.
Whether you're just starting down the recovery path or you're long asymptomatic, healing is a long and difficult process that can leave you completely exhausted. Especially when you've been in recovery for some time and you've heard the same things over and over again, it's easy to feel like there is nothing new to learn. What I've learned over the years is that there is always something new to learn and healing tends to come into fits and bursts.
