I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that is ok not to be ok. Goodbye, stupid cold doesn’t let the door hit you in the way out it feels so good not to be surrounded by a sea of tissues, I even thought the little walk I had in the pouring rain would keep it around a little longer, but luckily that wasn’t the case. Still a little foggy when it comes to my mind though right now, I feel nothing that’s the simplest way I can put it. I have gone from feeling everything intensely to feeling nothing at all and honestly it is a scary place to be. When you feel nothing it is like you are no one and struggle to engage and connect with the people around you. Oh, the bipolar mind what an interesting web your weave so many twists and turns and dead ends, no wonder I can get so lost at times.
Well, lets move on to my tip of the day – don’t let the what if but your end of.
Anxiety, we all know what a bitch it can be, life if anxiety was a person I would punch them in the face repeatedly. I can get so trapped in a vicious circle of anxiety that I can get to a point of I don’t know where it started so how the hell am I suppose to figure out when it ends?
One of the main things anxiety pulls out of her bag of tricks it’s that damn question, what if? What if they don’t like me? What if I fail? What if I fall over or say something stupid? Eurgh, it is frustrating just thinking about those stupid what ifs! So it is down to us to throw a curve ball into that vicious circle with the occasional what if things will be ok? A negative what if can really end a good idea so for every negative what if try and throw in 2 positive what if and create your own end to that vicious cycle.
Take care all
