Proud. Bragging ;)

Can i brag?

I have felt bad for quite a while, mourning mum, depressed and anxious. Last week i had a night with very fearful thinking (that others would probably see as psychotic).

I just thought: im also doing good stuff though…today i did loads of work in my household. Im reaching out to people socially. Im doing kind things with kid and dad. I contacted brother to talk things over in a good way. Despite feeling extremely fearful and shameful about things of the past, i start to work on a better future again, though it is more for my kid than for me. I have started to cook again. I e-mailed a sports club (martial arts) and a place for volunteering. I stay away from frightening guys.

Im actually a bit proud. :slight_smile:

I think a little fear can be motivating. But you don’t want fear to be disabling.

I think you are right…having some fear also inspired me to break bad habits. I used to dissociate from fear, which is harmful, because you dont respond to dangers. No fear at all is not good.

Being overwhelmed by fear just paralyzes you though. It gets you nowhere.
