A Note to Myself for When I’m Anxious
December 13, 2018
I need to get out of my own head.
I need to remember next to no one analyzes my behavior the way I do.
I need to remember everyone around me is also engrossed in their own thoughts.
I need to remember I don’t have to believe everything I think.
I need to remember not everything must be done right now.
I need to take a breath.
I need to meditate.
I need to enjoy this moment for what it is.
I need to trust that I am capable and competent.
I need to trust that most people are not out to cause harm.
I need to believe that I am as good as I know I am,
not as bad as my doubts want me to believe.
I need to remember to take a step back, time away, a moment to pause.
These feelings are good,
They mean I am growing
They mean I have more to learn
They mean I get to keep going, and I get to try again
Everything really will be ok –
I just forget to remember that sometimes.
