  1. I need to learn to accept things – especially short-term pain, aloneness, emptiness, etc. – and stop trying to block those things out with distractions that are only going to make things worse in the long-term.

      1. I need to begin planning ahead for myself. I need to create a schedule that works for me but still allows some time to just be me.

      2. I need to make a plan. I think I just rush to begin instead of taking my time to devise a proper plan then motivate myself to execute.

  2. I need to let go of my childhood memories that cause me pain and heartache. I have held them so long as a means of self protection and/or preservation, it’s made me fear potential success.

  3. Dpn’t have a mindset… every day I am dealt a new hand in the game of life and I play the cards I get… 🙂

    “There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, people we can’t live without but have to let go.”

      1. A mindset is an established ideology or attitude (in some circles it is also known as being closed minded in some cases, extremism in some cases)…, I don’t have that… 🙂

  4. The less we have ‘set’ in our minds the happier we will be. Treat each day for what it is. A new one, and realize the ‘present’ is exactly what it’s called. A gift, or present. xxx

    1. At least, you know the outcome that bothers you and based on that, you went to therapy. I hope the sessions help you 🙂

      1. Intensely. It comes down to my values and those of many of my relative are different. I’m following my heart, not theirs.

      1. You’re right. One bad behavior doesn’t define a person. I have to condition myself to let that part of me go. It’s just Im an artist and im sensitive about my sh*t…I’ll give you an example: I wrote a scene that plays out a “cat & mouse” scenario between two characters;within this scene is the crux of the obsession that’s built with this character over the other. My hubbs has been my beta reader and he gave his opinion on it reluctantly and because I couldn’t explain to him that I was focusing on the psychology of the scene not only the action within it, in my mind I heard I failed and I told him not to read anymore. But I want his help. I always want others help, I just hear failure when they give their opinion.

  5. To remember to breathe and stay present. To not be so scared all the time. I fear the unknown and change but then again everything is changing. I want to embrace change

      1. It paralyzes you from going forward due to the huge amount of anxiety? Or does it manifest in other ways?

      2. Is it because of fear of failure or because there are too many options and you don’t know which one to pick?
