    What have you done today to make you feel proud??

    Reading the Forum recently I have noticed it is complete doom and gloom, No one seems to be happy at all, I know it is the nature of Anxiety and panic that it is going to be a hard slog and that all you think of is the worst case scenario BUT I think to go forward you have to look at the positives in your life.

    I have recently been going through a really bad patch and believe me I couldn’t see a way forward and was really negative all the time and it took others to tell me that there has to be something positive I had done during the day….. A success.

    So I started writing three successes down from my day so I could see that it wasn’t all negative during my day as I thought it was.

    The dictionary definition of success is ………
    The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted

    I have found out, there is no right or wrong definition of how big that achievement has to be. We all know how hard doing basic things with anxiety and panic disorder can be, even the simplest things can seem like trying to climb Mount Everest.

    It took a good friend to remind me that when you are in such a way that you just cannot see any successes there is ALWAYS something that could be classed a success.

    At that time my 3 successes were as simple as

    1. Getting out of bed
    2. Having a wash
    3. Getting dressed


    I guess what I am trying to say is in amongst the doom and gloom there is ALWAYS something for you to be positive about ALWAYS something to make you feel proud that you have achieved.

    So this thread is for people to write their three positives for the day down to basically make you think that you have done something positive during your day and it hasn’t all been negative at all.

    So what have you done today to make yourself feel proud??

    1) got up, even if it was a bit late
    2) visited my grandad in hospital (I find this difficult)
    3) finally managed to bake the Christmas cake (very late but this has been overwhelming me for weeks)

    Thank you pregabalin

    I actually woke up and got out of bed before 10am today, thanks to my hubby. Managed to sort out my ottoman and box of receipts and contracts, less to do when we move.

    Although not today I've managed to get back into the swing of novel writing. I went through a period of hiatus which began to really get me down, but I seem to have broken out of the writer's block.

    What a great thread Emmz, as we all know it is so easy to get bogged down in the negativity cycle especially at this time of year.
    Today I have
    1. Changed my bed
    2. Vowed to be more positive
    3. Not dwelled on the past.
