Realizing something important

I called myself a failure today after another failed attempt to get to the park. That was wrong. I didn't give myself enough credit. I actually left home walked a long distance even if my head was telling me to go back and my chest felt tight and i could barely breathe i kept on walking i didn't make it to the park but i actually saw the park even if it was from a distance. Things went wrong after i turned around and saw how far i was from my safe zone and fear overpowered me.... i didn't realize how much progress I've made. Months ago I couldn't even get to the sidewalk and look at me now

    I am so proud that you understand what you have down today. You will get there.

    I am smiling at the success you have had and that you have realized that success.

    Take care and keep going.

  • Glad to have helped.

    Take care and you will make it to the park. :-D

  • Well done, when you're walking to the park next time and the bad feelings come say to your self: "So the agrophobic feeling is there. So what? Who cares? I'm still going to walk to the park even if I feel anxious. Why not? I don't care about the bad feeling, I'll put up with it! Why not? S*d you, I'm still going to the park, I just don't care, why should I." Keep saying stuff like that in your own words and eventually you will come to believe it.

  • Yess that's exactly what im going to do next time. I still kept on walking even when my mind was telling me to go back

  • Well done youπŸ‘ keep pushing yourself you can do it πŸ‘ I was walking up my street today and I thought to myself a year ago I couldn't even do this without jelly legs heart racing felt like I was going to pass out but I did it without feeling them horrible feelings. You can to believe in yourself.

  • Dan, I've been thinking about u all day. U are truly an inspiration. You were persistent. You showed courage. You were patient and didn't give up. I hope you realize how good u did.

  • πŸ€—πŸŒ» thank u

  • Truly there is hope for you you have to step out your comfort zone every day that's how you get stronger x

  • 😁😁😁 thanks bud πŸ˜€

  • Hey Danielle, today is day 4. Mom coming home??

    You did it all by yourself. We never doubted you. You deserve to be proud. xx

  • Yesss she'll be home in a few

  • :) xx

  • failure? I dont think so! U got out of the house didnt u? accomplishment right there. give yourself no restrictions or no boundries. There is nothing in your life to keep u for doing whatever u want! Take small steps everyday and let it become routine! After awhile, do something extra here and there. There is no award for doing anything but to tell yourself I will do what I want whenever I want. I was anxious today when I went for a long walk and short breaths at first. But, by the time I got to 2 miles or so, I was breathing normally and feeling normal. Get past that boundry in your head without a thought! U CAN DO IT!!

  • Im getting my mind use to being outside the comfort place. Walking everyday till i can actually stop being anxious

  • :) xoxo

  • I'm so sorry this has happened .. I too deal with this ... I too do not give myself enough credit for things .. so make a list every morning when I wake up what I are greatfull for and when u go to bed. Hopefully this will help you a little .. your great and u do deserve all the good things I'm life , and u deserve to be happy .

  • Good for you for getting out there and doing what you could to the best of your ability. Keep up the great work and maybe keep a daily log of each good thing you do (big or small) to see how much you are improving over time :) keep up the great work
