My emotional unavailability is due to me feeling like I have to control how relationships play out. It took me a while to realize that I was seeking validation from the connection more than anything.

Some days are just plain tough and that’s okay, there are going to be days that you don’t have it completely under control but cut yourself some slack and don’t take it personally

Remember you are not alone in this – so many these days suffer from anxiety, seek support from others when you need it, there is nothing to be ashamed of. Reaching out shows strength and also demonstrates bravery for speaking out.

I don’t have to act on urges (emotions) that rise up in me, especially if they are truly not the best for me or others

My goal is to remind myself to see the urge, not as a command that I am required to follow, but simply a suggestion from the child within me. I can then be aware to look for the good things that can come from the situation, even if it’s uncontrolled. I don’t need to control things to enjoy them, I can just let them happen.

I want control and I don’t have it

The mind is nuts. The awareness will return. Things will move forward when they are supposed to and it will all be fine. I know that. But for today, for right now, the mind is exploring the world of doubt and fear because it’s familiar and comfortable, and that’s okay too.

Now that I don’t have a job to got to, my mornings look a bit different. I really didn’t feel a sense of control over the many tasks that I needed to do in a day and realizing this made me aware that I needed a morning and evening routine. I did some research and the benefits and success stories of people who adopted a routine into part of their day, caused me to want to do the same.
