I love this post about being self-compassionate when we don’t quite meet our goals, and the advice for how to keep trying to meet our goals!

Also, I came home from residential treatment today! I will get back into blogging and reflecting on that whirlwind of an experience soon!

Getting Through Anxiety

When we feel like we can accomplish something, and then anxiety stops us in our tracks, it can make us feel disappointed. I wanted to get something done this morning and couldn’t, which led me to feel like a failure. As I’m writing this, I still feel upset with myself. Why couldn’t I just stand up to my anxiety and prove to myself that I’m stronger than it? Why can’t I go do that right now? While a part of me feels like I can, another part is holding me back. Even if I don’t get what I wanted done today, that’s okay. I know deep down that it doesn’t make me a failure, it just means I have to work harder.

It can be hard not to stay mad at ourselves. It’s okay and healthy to be a little disappointed, after all disappointment often fuels us to work harder…
