Being Honest With Myself

This is a subject that has affected me lately. I’m still pushing myself too much, neglecting my needs, and letting other aspects of my life become unbalanced.

It wasn’t a fun thing to realise, or admit to, but I had to be honest with myself.

I struggle with physical pain along with my mental health struggles. I could do more concerning my physical health, however.

While I shouldn’t push myself, I need to get back into my active ways. I used to enjoy walking and yoga, so activities like these need to become part of my routine again.

My lifestyle has become too sedentary and this needs to change. While it’s not going to fix my pain issues, I’ll see a doctor for that; it’ll more than likely ease some of them. Physical activity also has positive effect on mental health too.

Sometimes, I am the toxic person in situations. While the reason is related to my disorders, it shouldn’t be an excuse for it to fly under the radar. This realisation in particular stung, but that’s a good sign. If I didn’t feel this way, I wouldn’t want to do better.

Humans are flawed, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t learn from our behaviour. If we don’t learn, we’re doomed to repeat it.

I’m going to do what I can to work on myself.

I’ve mentioned my issues with time management a few times recently. While it is my Achilles heel, I don’t do much to combat it. “I’ll do this later” has become a comfortable, yet dangerous, staple of my vocabulary.

Of course, some things can be delayed, but in my case, it all starts pilling up. This isn’t a new issue. It is one that I’ve faced before, it’s becoming more of a burden. Especially when it causes issues that spill over into other aspects of my life.

One of my favourite podcasters, Francesca Amber, spoke about the book “The Power of Focus” by Jack Canfield and how it’s helped her. I have a Kindle again after a dear friend gifted me one, so I’m going to get a copy of that and take notes.

The picture below shows tips from said book.

I don’t see anything changing on the blog. I did take too much on trying to do a post each day for October, lesson learned.

I’ll stick to my 3 day schedule, and post in between if I have the time, or idea to post.

This might become a transition period, since I’m going to be working on myself alongside my projects, but I’ll be sure not to over do it anymore.
