Calmed me right down. The run was the release and the shower was the relaxing.
GOOD FOOD, not LESS FOOD
"Aw that’s a cute kitty!"
Cat?? Try cat-erpie.
Psh. 3 year olds, am I right?
So that when I get to school, instead of slipping toward depression, if I get angry or frustrated or upset I’m just going to go running.
People being jerks? Deuces going to go run around.
No Friday night plans? Suckers. Running is now my fall through plan.
Why not make my high anxiety and frustration work for me.
You know because I’m all about that bass; and that treble;
And the alto, soprano, baritone—I love ALL parts because they’re ALL BEAUTIFUL
My ex was not a nice person to me, verbally. And that’s not to say he was never nice-but calling your girlfriend a whore or a slut is not nice. Period.
That’s led to a lot of resentment and the reality of seeing him in the near future is extremely stressful. What’s also stressful is that he has a new girlfriend.
There’s a few mind sets I’m having. I wouldn’t say I’m happy for him, but I’m not happy for her because in my mind there’s one of two things happening.
One; he’s mean to her too in which case I don’t understand why she would be doing this to herself.
Two; he’s not calling her names and being vindictive in which case I don’t understand what I did. While we were dating I was sexually abused by an ex, and I understand just as it was scary and confusing for me it was probably also hard for my boyfriend at the time (the ex in question). It hurts still to think I brought it upon myself—-no matter how many times I remind myself I didn’t do anything.
I’m scared she will have unwarranted opinions of me-and opinions of others greatly influenced my life at college previously; IE bullying and harassment.
In the end I just need to put my best got forward and remember that my life is my own and not theirs or anyone’s. Regardless of what happens around me.
Still scary. And it’s hard to say “I AM SCARED” at 22.
How do you combat worries?
