I hope everyone is doing ok and keeping safe at home.
Have you ever just looked at yourself and thought what the fuck are you doing? That seems to be the main thing in my head at the moment. Like I know I am about to make the same the mistake, but maybe this time it will work out differently. Like, no Vixxy, what the fuck are you doing? It is like adding 2 plus 2 and hoping that the outcome will be something other than 4, (insert palm to face!).
I know have come a long way, but I am now trying to make things fit my life that I have outgrown and no matter how much I try to squeeze into them, it just doesn’t feel quite right. Like, you wouldn’t wear shoes that are two sizes too small, so why try to hold onto to things you have mentally outgrown. It has served its purpose and now it is time to let go.
My tip of the day is –
” A good idea can turn bad.”
Have you ever listened to a song that you like over and over again and you end up disliking that song because you have heard it too many times? Yep, I have. Have you ever stayed in a relationship or a friendship because you are holding on to the good times from the past and ignoring the shitty times that are currently happening? Yep, I have. We outgrow things all the time, the whole point of recovery or progress is moving forward.
Just because something was good and made you happy before, doesn’t mean that it will always have the same effect. I have definitely outgrown a lot of things that saved me and gave me what I needed at that particular moment in order for me to take the next step forward.
When we grow, we change and when we change those things that previously helped us grow may no longer have the same positive effect. So maybe it is time to have a mental spring clean if you feel that you are stuck in a rut. Ask yourself, are you just trying to do what you normally do over and over again and hoping for a different outcome. If so, well maybe its time for some new.
Take care all,
