The Praise Room

Recommended Posts

ArtMatters

Ok I know I did mine already but I also have to add something today cuz I actually feel proud of myself and this is rare for me...... today I was still having a rough day and not feeling well but I still somehow managed to make positive steps. I inquired about a possible gig to make a little extra money, so we'll see if that works out or not, but I'm proud of myself for even just applying and following through.. I made a bunch of phone calls I had to make and I didn't even hesitate very long to make them (usually it takes me about half an hour to work up the nerve to call someone I've never called before etc)....and I think I'm finally starting to be able to admit to myself my limitations and that my expectations of myself have been way too high

Well done everyone.

I thought I would add mine.

I have made it through half a term back at work with only 1 day off. It has been a major struggle but am really proud of myself for not giving up.

I also made it through the weekend with my mum visiting, which was really hard as she doesn't know about any of my mh.

Well done Art, was thinking about you today and how you still manage to take positive steps when you're got so much to deal with! Wish I could summon up that grit!

Good job Daisycat for making it through, knew you could do it :) xxx

Can we praise others in this room? In some ways I don't want to because anyone I don't mention might be upset and there isn't anyone who doesn't deserve praise except those annoying spammer people.

But I would like to say thank you to Art Matters for being supportive and helpful and not giving up on me when I got upset and to Aurora for also not giving up on me over several months and thank you to everyone else who's made a post that's made me feel happier in any way. I'd also like to praise Data for sorting out his work problems so brilliantly. I wish I was more like him.

I went out with friends and had a lovely time. It was great to stop thinking about my difficulties and pains and just act normal. I now feel a bit empty and scared as i know that there is a monster inside me. Still, i want to congratulate me for giving myself a break. Who knows if the monster will become softer and softer and softer until it's a lovely sweet monster?

Well done Karai, it can be hard to go out and be around people when we are finding it hard so good on you for getting out there and having a good time and giving yourself a much needed break. We all have a little monster inside of us but we have angels too and all the other metaphors- that makes you wonderfully human and wonderfully you. *big hugs*

I finally got back in contact with two of my friends who fell out of contact with last year during my difficult avoidant period, I haven't heard back yet and though I wish I had never done it or had recontacted earlier I am proud that I finally did it and that I was level with my reply and said sorry but didn't gush and self flagellate. I am hoping that the replies will be positive and that eventually I will be able to explain and will be able to rebuild the connections with them.

This has been a very big thing for me and I know that it is opening up a can of worms that I'd happily avoid but I will put my best foot forward and slog through whatever pain and fear there may be to get to where I need or want to be and to improve my relationships.

Good for you sueblue, keep up the good work, you can do it : )

I got up and tidied part of my room even though I feel numb and apathetic, I also resisted the urge to push myself to do more and am ignoring the inner critic which demands I do more. I have done just enough for my energy leves today.

I have formed a club for people who go on short walks in my local area:

http://www.meetup.com/telfordwalkers/

So far 12 people have registered and I have 2 members who have confirmed they are going on a walk. However, its early days yet!

It has taken a bit of work to set it up as it involves a lot of thought; I've chosen alternating days, times, and different parts of our town for variety, so I can see what people like. I've also uploaded directions, descriptions, website links, and even location maps for some of the walks.

Today I have managed to get my niece off to day hospital, go to the dentist, get my car in the shop for service, have a stolen morning coffee in a french patisserie. Do some grocery shopping and now I making dinner for 3. I am really proud of myself for not slouching on my day off. :)

Well, despite how I was feeling I managed to get my 4 replacement exam essays in on Friday, so I can now draw a line under last year's work and concentrate on this year. It was such a relief when I got the coursework receipt confirmation email.

I have been attending a few music courses. Im doing keyboard, guitar and music production. I have only missed one session of each class so far and have been told im doing well. I even get given extra homework to work on because im taking it in pretty quick which is a shock to me. And i now practice nearly every day and am getting better
