I’ve had a better few days. Amazing how being honest out loud helps to challenge wrong thinking and wrong action.
As I’ve looked back on the last few weeks it has been good to acknowledge and see some of the things that contributed to the little blip:
- I’ve been really busy and so let little things slide
- Dealt with a small confrontation that demanded lots of mental energy, so I reverted to tried and trusted unhelpful methods of coping
- Some of my good friends are having a tough time with dying parents and other stressors, so I’ve been reluctant to ask for extra support, feeling like I should be over all this by now
- Some stress about living and work situation bubbling away in the background.
