Hello everyone and welcome to another session of Self Therapy. The past week has been tiring, exhausting and yet, satisfying.
Here is a quick link to Session 13: https://reasons2stay.home.blog/2019/07/11/self-therapy-session-13/
Starting with the most important, mental health. It has been a roller coaster of emotions. For the first time in months I had a glimpse of a thought to quit my job. I quickly shrugged it off thinking that this will further delay my dream and I cannot afford it. So I will keep hanging if I must.
One thing I have started doing that always works out for me. I keep telling myself this job is just a phase, it is not my life. I keep repeating it over and over and over again till I relax and calm down. I say, remember how things were an year back? 2 years back? 5 years back? Are they the same now? And the answer is they have changed every single time. Mostly for the better, so why would it be different this time around? I am well equipped now to deal with my demons.
Next is physical health which is blossoming (touchwood). People have started noticing changes and each complement further motivates me to work even harder at the gym. I am going almost everyday. It is my happy place. I love working out.
Talking about my job, it is going through a rough patch. I was told I will be moving to a different department which was supposedly a step up but that has not happened in two weeks and it has got me thinking if it will happen. Furthermore they have put me in a timing that I am not comfortable with and that too without my consent. I am not liking it one bit but just carrying on.
Lastly, my dream. What I live for. Why I bare the pain. Why I keep going. I am 2.5 months in now. It makes me so happy. That I am moving closer towards it. Whenever I set my mind onto something in life I have made it happen. If not the first time then the second and if not second then the third attempt.
That was about it. On weekends I focus on meeting friends. Eating out. Watching a movie or a show. Basically keeping busy and prepping up for the coming week. Which I know is going to be tough so I prepare to be tougher.
That is about it. You tell me how has your week been. And what was the highlight in comments 😊
