3. been drinking water, and i've had two cups of tea
4. got a bunch of work done
5. looking forward to therapy tonight
6. crocheted half a glove
7. oh and i exercised this morning, walked outside this afternoon, and woke up actually feeling rested????
good morning folks, and happy birthday to lady gaga, vince vaughn, laura harrier, nick frost, brett ratner, julia stiles, dianne wiest, chris barrie, mike newell, neil kinnock, and michael parkinson.
today is also international laser tag day.
on this day in 845 paris is sacked by ragnor lodbrok's viking army, slavery is abolished in new york state in 1799, and in 1939 the spanish civil war ends as madrid falls to general fransisco franco's fascists.
have a good one, i love you all very much.
Feelings about "you got this" and maybe better affirmations...
I find "You got this" really frustrating because generally I do not, in fact, feel that I have "got this."
So I've been thinking about what I'd rather hear...
I think things like "hey, you've done some pretty challenging stuff! I know it's scary but you have some great skills." Or "yeah, that does sound hard. I have faith in you, though."
1) acknowledge that yeah it's scary
2) tell me not just that I've got it but that you believe in me
3) tell me a little about why you believe in me.
Maybe add on something else like encouragement of something fun I can do after.
everyone i've talked to here has been so friendly but how do i sustain conversations? i get so nervous and just want to hide.
i miss having a mental health support community to help me on my low days, but all the ones i've found, i can't relate to the userbase. i want to talk to other adults with jobs and bills. i can't relate to college students.
i miss my cat. she was my support for 5 years, and i've been struggling so badly since she died.
Hi, I like science, art, and cute porn. I'm learning to use watercolors, and also Python.
