As previously stated (read: hell highway), I have been going through some stuff but haven’t been very nice to myself about it. Well, in the interest of my general, relational, spiritual, emotional and physical well-being, I have decided to look toward a solution. Let me be the first to say that I don’t know exactly HOW I’m going to do the following but I promise to try. Feel free to suggest.
So, as I was saying, in my own interest and the interest of those that love me and are tired of hearing me tear into myself, I have made a decision:
My goal this week is:
1. To try and remember to be kind to myself (literally)
2. To lower my standards and expectations to something a little more realistic e.g. get through this intact, NOT get through this perfectly.
3. To accept that while some friends may not be able to or want to be supportive during this time, others actually DO and to stop feeling bad for wanting, needing or accepting their support. That’s what friends are for, and I hope I would do the same for them.
Three goals may not seem like a lot but for me, in my current insanely perfectionistic frame of mind, it’s plenty. Wish me luck!
