This blog is for the good, the bad and the ugly. This includes self care, tears and negative thoughts. Good days and bad days.
This afternoon I had a bad moment. I was upset and felt really stupid. And it was over a silly little thing. A silly little thing that was out of my control and was not affected by my intelligence in anyway! But telling yourself this doesn’t help. It just makes you feel worse and even more stupid, it did for me.
So what did I do to try and make me feel better? I got in bed. Not moping. But being comfortable. Just snuggled under the duvet with Milly by my side. It’s always a treat for Milly and me when she comes upstairs with me! I wiped my tears and distracted myself with Netflix. I’m watching Life Unexpected at the moment which is a sweet heart warming show. I got my pens and colouring book and had a little me time.
Depression and anxiety really suck. And those negative dark thoughts can sometimes be really loud so you have to find ways to quieten them. For me, this afternoon, the way I’m quietening those thoughts is by tv, colouring, Milly, snuggling under my duvet and now blogging. How do you quieten those negative thoughts?
