It’s really hard not to feel envious of the work everyone else is getting done, while I’m still just working on making my bed every day. I want to find a way to motivate myself through this without getting bogged down in the “I’m not doing enough” feelings, because I know logically and realistically I’m doing what I can, when I can. It’s just hard to completely believe that when my anxiety rears its ugly head.
I can do this. I AM doing this. My path isn’t the same as anyone else’s. It is better for me to go at a pace I can withstand (and maintain) than to rush and wear myself out, or slide back into another flare-up. I can get there better by going a little at a time than if I try and keep up to anyone else’s pace and sabotage my success so far. Keep that in mind, me. STAY ON THE PATH, it’ll be okay. I can do this.
Okay, let’s hope some of that sinks in, and I’ll keep working on positively motivating myself to stick it out in a reasonable pace instead of berating myself for not keeping up to others. I know what’s best for my health and well-being, and I just have to trust that - and go easy on myself!!
I can do this.
