So after five days of putting it off due to apathy and lack of motivation, I finally got around to sweeping the house! My self-esteem went up a little bit since then. It was a goal accomplished. And it feels good to live in a clean house again.
Which gets me thinking of the potential blessings of having SZ - you look at the simple things in life. When I think of goal setting, I think of big things like careers, buying a house, getting married, etc. But to make tiny goals like daily chores to be done, it really helps to boost oneself. I don’t think many normal people would understand just how hard it is to get up and do housework when you are sick with the negative symptoms of SZ. It’s lovely to see life through such simple eyes
