Anxiety snowball

#13
I'm ok. I'm having to process alot of thoughts from my past today. Regrets that make me feel bad. Huh! It's exhausting and shit for my ego, the battles in my mind can be crazy. 5 weeks no alcohol and 5 days no cigarettes. My mum is bringing round food later.

That is really great! I’m proud of you. For both things. Those aren’t easy things.
I understand regrets and processing things. It is very exhausting.

You obviously don't need to explain anything, but in my work when I get really anxious about making a mistake or doing something wrong, it never is as bad as I make out? I don't know if you are the same as me in this aspect, but I have such fear of making mistakes, having my job and security taken away which results in me loosing my home and everything I built up to give me safety and security. Etc etc. Total catastrophic events from something that ends up not being a mistake, or if it is a mistake: it's actually ok and solvable somehow.

I constantly say to those I supervise (although I find it hard to allow me the same compassion) " it's impossible to be working at 100%, getting it right 100% of the time, because we are human and will get it wrong at times, for a variety of reasons. It's ok". Because that is true. We all will make mistakes. A company and a boss needs to understand that and have supportive practices/policies in place to manage that and accept that.

So, I hope your mistake at work has sorted itself out and you have given yourself permission to make mistakes because it's human, and compassionate.

Sorry you feel like shit....but good on you for making 5 weeks PLUS 5 days no cigarettes! You rock!
