Do you notice some impact? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, absolutely! LikeLiked by 1 person That’s great! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person I often say to myself, “This could be my last day alive, so how can I make it valuable?” It’s much different than what I used to say to myself which was “I’m a hopeless loser and wish I was dead.” LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That’s awesome! How did you manage to make that change? LikeLike Reply Years of self-care,, stretching my limits, group therapy, asking for support, losing my income, and grieving the loss of many loved ones in a few years. It was a huge, seemingly unstoppable shift in perspective. I joke that the Universe slapped me awake. So, I made a choice to stop living in fear and stop hating myself. It has been a long, painful journey. I feel very grateful to be alive. I have sad days, but those are few and they seem easy when I remember the mindset I was trapped in for seventeen years.

Several times a day my thoughts will start to spiral down into negative thinking traps…minor issues quickly become overwhelming problems and things get out of perspective. As soon as I notice that happen, I tell myself to stop, take a breath and step back from the situation. LikeLiked by 4 people Reply Doing this helps you getting back on track?

LikeLiked by 1 person ‘Jesus, can you please tell me where I put my _________’ because I somehow misplace nearly everything I own on the regular, (must be an anxious personality thing).
