Because I haven't written in a while...

Monday, February 18, 2013

I haven't had much to say, really. At all. Winter is a very hard time for me. Perhaps I have seasonal affective disorder. No matter what it is, every February gets a little rough. As an avid "previous year's journal entry" reader, I can assure you that every February I start to feel lazy and dull. I start to feel a little less in control. I worry about my relationships. This is the time of year when I think my friends are all talking about me behind ym back and that my fiance is on the brink of leaving me.

And it's all imaginary.

Basically, what I end up with is an internal dialog. The Voice, you know the one, says, "God! You're just so fat and boring. I can't believe anyone wants to be around you." Then the logical voice says, "That's not true. Ignore it."

So, I try to distract myself. I read. I write. I play video games. I add in an extra work out. I look up recipes. I try to make myself interested in what is going on around me. I try something new.

Today I am going to look into some spring cleaning stuff.

What do you do to get over the Winter Blahs?

    I've had the same thing since I was 13 and I'm 21 now so you can imagine. This year it really hasn't been that bad. I've just surrounded myself with positive. Everyday I get quotes from a TON of pages I liked on Facebook. Another thing I have been doing about it is actually trying to do sort of self therapy. I've been looking at all sorts of web pages on changing negative thinking to positive.

    I hope your winter blues get better! emoticon
