I am getting ready for bed and what I hope will be a good nights sleep. I got a lot done today, and I feel good about it. I took care of things that had been piling up, as well as appointments today, and on top of all that, I also blew past my step milestone for the day. That means tomorrow I will try to better today’s total.
Wednesday was the first day in over a week where I felt like myself. I’ve been hitting the wall in my recovery, I knew it but exhaustion kept me from doing anything to correct it. I started to get depressed and turning on myself because there was no one to blame for my failure but me.
It’s never a good thing to start hating yourself. It only leads to pain and depression. The negative feelings are like poison to the body, and they show no mercy. Depression feeds on itseelf. The more depressed you feel, the more depressed you’ll become. There is no limit to how lie you can take yourself. Breaking that mindset gets more challenging every day.
That is why a feeling of accomplishment is so important. It gives us self-recognition for the things we do right.
