A bad day today is a lot better than a bad day was six months ago

Today I’m feeling some slight anxiety and some annoyance.

Six months ago I was having panic attacks.

Today I feel a little wishful, because I wish my bf was more affectionate.

Six months ago, we lived in separate households 80 miles apart.

Today, my noisy coworkers are getting on my nerves.

Six months ago, I was unemployed.

I have a better set of problems now.

—————————

I KNOW all this is true.

So WHY is part of my mind trying to get me anxious again? WHY?

It's hard to remember to appreciate how far you've come, so I'm glad you can!

Today I'm feeling bad that I'm not free of anxiety, but several weeks ago, I was panicking every day at work.

Congrats to you on the awareness you have and that you are able to use it to shift your perspective into more of a positive direction.

I love your positive point of view. Thank you for sharing. You’ve helped me too! May you walk in peace and may the great become greater yet!💛

I love this!

Wow, great perspective and lots to celebrate in the past 6 months! Maybe the "why" for your question is found in the truth about habits. Though much has changed for you in the past 6 months, you may have spent MANY MORE months prior to this with negative or anxious/panic habits. It takes time for our new thoughts/responses to become the new constant habit instead of the old one still having priority. Does that make sense?
