First of all I really should write on here more! There is no point having a blog to document your journey to a happier life if you never write on it. I would like to say I’ve been incredibly busy and haven’t had a spare moment but that would definitely be a lie…. To be fair in the last month or so I have done a fair bit but that does include binge watching game of thrones in an attempt to catch up before the new series started. Worth it.
I did also go to Croatia which was lovely but highlighted my issues with crowds, heat and exhaustion (waking up at five in the morning and then staying up for over 36 hours is NOT fun). Busy places still stress me out although over the years I have got better. I can now enjoy spending time in cities and bars/clubs but I’m still not completely comfortable with those situations. For me socialising has always been quite hard work and doesn’t always go that well (I think everyone has been there?) and when things go badly my anxiety kicks in and my whole night is ruined. Seriously, I can pronounce a word slightly wrong and I will think about that mistake for the rest of the night. But I digress. Croatia was an amazing getaway and much needed after my exams!
I’ve always been trying to get a little fitter and lose a bit of weight so I feel happier with my body which will hopefully help my confidence and reduce my anxiety in social situations (and also stop my depressing self critical thoughts when I look in the mirror).
Hopefully I carry on with this and don’t give up!
Thanks for reading
