One thing I hate is when I’m doing really well and then I have a bad moment or day. Why? For starters, it’s disappointing to see ourselves struggle when we’ve been doing so well. Also, I know that for me, I sometimes struggle with one bad moment or day turning into more than one.
I know I’ve talked about this before, but it can be a scary concept. Not only am I disappointed when I don’t accomplish something, but it makes me worry that I’ll continue to struggle. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. We don’t have to allow our one bad moment or day to lead into causing others to be the same.
So what can we do to stop this negative domino effect? We can remind ourselves of all the times we did succeed and how we do have the strength to get through our anxiety and over our fears. We can also continue to practice as much as possible and prove to ourselves that we don’t have to let our anxiety control us! While it can sometimes be difficult, we need to show ourselves that one bad moment or day is exactly that: one bad moment or day.
Remember, you can get through your anxiety and any other struggles you may deal with. You just have to work hard on a consistent basis and remember that you are strong!
