Better

A few weeks ago, I hit a bit of a low. I was feeling down a lot of the time. I was exhausted. I was under the weather. And I was overthinking everything.

Do you ever get like that?

I'm all too aware that I am an infinitely blessed young woman. I'm fairly healthy and very happy, and am surrounded by all sorts of blessings in my everyday life. But sometimes, I worry. I've always been a worrier, and sometimes when I'm tired or stressed, all my worries come home to roost.

Such was the case a few weeks ago. I felt like I was just going through the motions at work, with friends, at home, and the rest of the time I spent worrying and beating myself up (not physically...but you know what I mean). It wasn't pleasant.

A lot of this was silliness on my part but it still made me feel lousy. It was a snowball - a few snide comments, a couple of interfering questions, one big answer that changed a lot of things for me, and I was magically on a bit of a downward spiral.

And now I'm feeling better.

I thought you'd like to know.

Have a great week!

  2. I am so glad that you are feeling better. It sucks that you are a far-away friend so I can't tell when you are going through stuff and just going through the motions. I think that we lived in the same town and watched the Bachelorette together every Monday night together, I would know 'cuz you wouldn't be mocking the TV enough or something. ;)

    Anyway, I know that I go through times like this. In fact, I think I've been *ridiculously* down on myself for awhile since I had my self worth handed to me in October and it takes me forever to get over stuff. I hold everything in too long and I need to learn to get over it. And it's stupid too since I've done a lot of awesome stuff since then. ANYWAY, the point of this ramble is to say that I know how you feel completely, and I'm glad that you are better now and that you can enjoy life (and meeting Becca T and the Wthans!) to the full! :)

  3. I think we all can feel like that sometimes - and I do tend to get more worried when I´m in negative stress. The good with downsides though, is that is always has to come an upside after it - and those should be enjoyed fully! :-)

  5. I get like that all the time if I am not careful - I even overthink overthinking! Glad you're feeling better though.

  6. its all too easy to get into a situation where things start going downhill but good for you recognising that and doing something about it. Just makes me think about how my friends are feeling as sometimes you just need to ask how are you :)

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
