Learning to deal with stress

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I am on my journey down in weight and up in self esteem. I know that this is going to be a life long change for me. I have become a recluse due to being self conscious and embarrassed by my weight. I am seeking new friends through SP so I can make this work. It is hard to do things if you feel like you are all alone. I love the support I get from SP. Today was a very stressful day for me but I am trying to learn to overcome. I don't deal well with change and I get overwhelmed if I have to much to do on my daily list. The worst thing is when I am in the middle of doing something and I get interrupted by a "Will you come pick me up?", "Will you take me somewhere?", "Will you do something for me?" It drives me crazy because once I get distracted I loose my focus and then forget what I was doing and It just messes up my whole day. I know I tend to panic if I don't finish a task but I am trying to learn that this too shall pass. None of this is worth stressing over. I will do this!

    We are all on our way to, to get through. Enjoy the "skin that you're in" and work it from there. It's a life style change and practice saying "no" on ocassion so you won't be stressed. They will find a way and you may be handicapping them as well. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
