The past week has been a bit of a roller-coaster, if I'm honest; it has had its ups and downs, even within each day, which is not abnormal, I guess.
I have a wrist injury that affects my rock climbing (which is my sport), it has been especially bad this week. I generally use rock climbing as a kind of factory reset of my brain/emotions somewhat, so when I can't perform as well its not great. I found a way around it today though, which is good.
Somewhere in my mind still lurks the feeling of loneliness, but I don't think that would necessarily be resolved through dating, etc. I reckon I need to become more comfortable within myself before I think of that too much. I went climbing with a friend and his gf, and they lightly mused/joked about the fact that I should find a gf as if it was as easy as clicking my fingers and summoning one, at the time it kinda hit me in the feelz, so to speak, but now I think its sort of amusing.
Also been procrastinating a little bit ahah
Other than that I've been pretty good.
Breaking Free Activity #10
Make a list of positive affirmations about yourself. Write them on note cards and place them where you will see them regularly. Change the cards often so they stay fresh. When you read affirmations, close your eyes and fully embrace the meaning of the words. Observe any tendency of your mind to reject the affirmations in favor of old, deeply held beliefs.
(I don't think this one is necessary as I don't view myself as some sort of villain, or anything)
Breaking Free Activity #11
Plan a weekend trip to the mountains or beach. If possible, plan a vacation or retreat for a week or longer by yourself to a place where no one knows you. Visit a foreign country by yourself if at all possible. Use this time as an opportunity for self-observation and reflection. Keep a journal. Practice good self-care. Take along this book and spend time doing the Breaking Free exercises. When you return home, observe how you are different and how long it takes for you to begin returning to familiar patterns.
(Don't really think this is a great thing to do at the moment considering the state of the world)
Breaking Free Activity #12
Do you believe it is OK for you to have needs? Do you believe people want to help you meet your needs? Do you believe this world is a place of abundance?
Yes, yes, and yes
I kinda skipped through that quickly so if you think there is anything that I should do or expand on definitely tell me.
Thanks Aphador :)
