As I wrote the title of this post, I felt panicked – My anxiety was starting and unfortunately I just needed to roll with it until it was over.
For anyone that follows my blog and social media, they will know it has been a bit of a tough week. I had a big event on at the start of the week, I was also poorly and little man has been so ill.
We have been in and out of nursery, and he has had sky high temperatures on and off all week. He has also woken up in the middle of the night every night this week so lack of sleep is taking its toll.
Something happened this week, where everything clicked.
This was….me. This is…..me.
Sometimes I do things where afterwards I think I must not do that. I say things without thinking and promise myself that I will think before I speak. I worry about things that all turn out fine, and tell myself I do not need to worry.
This week it stopped. I went with it…and do you know, it started to work.
Accepting who I was has made me more confident and able to move forward with some issues I had been battling with.
Because I am the person that gets stressed out over really little things. The person that can sometimes be a bit over dramatic and moody. I am also the person that will always refuse help from anyone…no matter how bad things get.
So I am finally accepting this is who I am. When I have a wobble and a stress at work, I shrug it off, rather than feel guilty and bad for it.
When little man is being naughty and I need 2 minutes locked away in the bathroom, I won’t be beating myself up about it.
All these little things are what makes me who I am…me.
Do you have trouble accepting who you really are?
