So I did something that scares me this weekend. It wasn't something fun, necessarily, but it was good and healthy for me. This weekend I stood up for myself AND I shared my emotions with someone. Although these things may come easily to some, for me they are a challenge and take conscious effort.
First I had an argument with my husband and rather than let it go I
asked him if we could talk about it, which we did. Both the argument and
the make-up conversation were good things for me to work through. Also
my toddler was there to witness it all so I talked to him about what was
happening to help him understand that sometimes we argue but that's ok.
And he was able to see our resolution.
In addition my adopted grandfather is not doing well, he is in the
hospital and most likely won't be coming out. I didn't realize how sad
this was making me. I guess if it's not happening right in front of me
then I am pretty good at detaching. Once I realized how I was feeling I
shared it with my husband and also called my sister who I actually cried
with because we both had a similar relationship with him and she could
I feel proud of myself for doing these things.
My food intake has been a little out of control....well a lot out of control. Writing here has helped. :)
