I know sometimes you’d just rather stay in bed, at home, away from people where you feel safe and isolated. I do so get that.
Maybe though today you get up, get a shower, get dressed, brush your teeth and comb your hair and step out that door.
One thing at a time. No need to be over thinking a bunch of steps ahead…just do that next thing in front of you!
Depression and anxiety come in many forms, shapes and sizes. You are not alone in this battle!
The sign of a winner is an individual who keeps making forward progress even after many stops and starts including falling flat on his or her face sometimes.
Three things to do today to help you move forward!
1. Take a step forward
No matter how big or small any step is movement forward.
2. Take a breath
Breathing is your friend. Slow, deep breaths help you focus on controlling anxiety. Fill your lungs with life giving oxygen! Stay in the moment. Try to not zone out! Don’t hold your breath!
3. Give yourself permission to fail
So many of us who do battle with depression and anxiety seem to believe everything we do must be done perfectly. That’s a crock! Just try and do your best! That’s forward motion!
I’m rooting for you and I believe in you! Even if you’re not able to see your value, your worth, I see it! You can do anything you set your mind to doing! You’ve fought this battle long and hard!
You are a survivor!
You are a beautiful individual!
You can do this!!
