Before I Talk Myself Out Of It...



~I often wonder why I get treated like a child, but when I stop and reflect, I realize that I act like one a good deal of the time. Is it possible for one's maturity to stagnate, or even fall backwards? If so, how will I ever stand on my own two feet?

~I spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to talk myself out of how I really feel. Not only do I judge my feelings--which I don't necessarily think is a bad thing most of the time--but I harbor them like fugitives instead of working through them. I'm never able to move on, because that would require exploring how I can change them and then actually doing something about it.

~Sometimes looking in the mirror and realizing that the person looking back at me is supposedly me is completely terrifying and not completely believable. The simple thought that I exist is more than I can do deal with at times, and I don't quite know when this started or how to snap out of it.

~I don't know how to live in the present moment. I live in the past and I live in the future, and the present is like an unloved relative that I ignore and often forget exists.

~I self-sabotage so often and so effictively that I don't even try to stop doing so when I'm conscious of it. It's like a game that I feel compelled to play.

~I feel like I've completely lost control, but I don't feel like trying to get it back yet. I feel like I'm falling in slow motion, and I know I'll eventually hit the ground, but I can't think that far ahead.

~The thing I hate the most about myself is my cowardice. There are times when I know what I should and could do, but just don't because the fear is easier.

I'm sure you are doing the best you can with what you are dealing with. (hugs)

I've spent the last 2 days curled up in bed because I don't want to deal with anything. Everything is such a enormous chore.

I'm so proud of you realizing all of this for yourself. I swear it's half the battle! I know it's so hard to look at myself and actually to see myself for all that I am right now, but I think it's the healthiest thing I can do for myself. Keep up the good work, even when it's freakin' hard.... I'm rooting for you!
