I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
great news SOLB
have got the inevitable mood crash from yesterday
SOLB, be proud of yourself! There's nothing wrong with feeling like you achieved something. You felt the fear and did it anyway (to paraphrase the book). I'm fairly sure that's most people's definition of bravery.
As for the post-social event shame, don't worry about it! I bounce from one social faux pas car crash to another. And people still talk to me (I don't know why).
Just been out to the woods for a run. 33 minutes this time - I keep pushing myself to do an extra minute each time. It's been a tough week and I felt pretty rough when out orienteering yesterday and I really couldn't see how I was going to make it out today. I felt a bit better as Saturday wore on though. What made the difference though was seeing what SOLB achieved yesterday. I thought if SOLB can achieve that then me getting out for a run should be easy by comparison. Thanks SOLB - you made it happen and I hope in return it gives you something to help your mood today.
Frodo, these situations can be difficult at times. It's not pathetic just at times it can be too much to face up to. After all, they could have come over and spoken to you. It's something I often feel awkward about when I'm out. I'd rather just sit where I am and feel awkward about going over to anyone else that I know. When I'm not on top of my game it's just so difficult to open a conversation. Also people are always in the middle of another conversation so I always thing what if I go over there have no idea what they're talking about and can't work my way in. I'd feel such an idiot. These things aren't easy even if some people make them look easy so don't beat yourself up over it.
I am glad that you mentioned the new shed was arriving tomorrow though, otherwise I would thought the old one had been destroyed in frustration!
I see SOLB's name has received some festive decoration!
Hugs called for methinks (((((Frodo)))).
I find that my self-confidence feels at rock bottom at the moment. It really takes a lot of getting back but it's something that I think we just have to believe can be regained and keep working towards it.
Oooh it's even changed the name on an old post
