It was OK

Been a strange week, my plans for the week were changed last minute on Monday, meaning I had to do a whole host of unplanned spontaneous things (not usually a happy place for me), and I did it, I didn’t get to anxious, and I didn’t throw up (sorry, probably TMI, but it happens), and I didn’t have to force myself, or hurt myself to get through it. I just managed (and a tiny little bit of me is quite proud that I did).

It’s the first time I’ve been away from home without huge anxieties for about three years and I even enjoyed some of it, maybe having less than 12 hours to sort myself out and make changes to my plans meant I had no time to think about being anxious, maybe I’m starting to get better, or perhaps a bit of both.

The note to myself is as follows:
– I did something without any time to plan and it was OK
– I went somewhere I usually find extremely anxiety provoking and it was OK (and maybe even a teeny bit fun!)
– I wasn’t in control of the things that changed and it was OK
– I did something difficult with very little preparation and it was OK

It was OK.

  1. From one anxious person to another – well done!! I am the worlds best avoider when it comes to situations I don’t like, but I’m learning. Do you find that the thought of things is often worse than the reality?

      Hi there, thank you, I think I mostly block out the situations and experiences so I don’t have to think about them, that’s why I wrote about it this time, because it was OK 🙂 take care.

    The manner of presentation isn’t quite my cup of tea, nor some of the deductive reasoning, but there’s some very good stuff in this article nonetheless, I think, When I later read your post it came to mind again, so here’s a link. Enjoy, dismiss, whatever; my intent was good anyway. 🙂
