Positive Coping Mechanisms Ahoy!

Today feels better than yesterday. I survived social pressures of the dedication service and managed to leave relatively unscathed by well meaning relatives. I find it increasingly difficult to reply to the question how are you. particularly when i am not doing great. I tend to reply with a non-specific, ‘I’m doing ok thanks.’

It’s not a lie and certainly, or at least not a bit one.  The only problem is, people want more. I’ve got nothing else to give.

Pressure is listing off me slowly. I’m hoping life will return to some semblance of normality soon. I need rest, time and a lot of space.

I’ve been feeling pretty guilty about not working on my novel or going running. I’ve not been eating as much as I should and it’s been effecting my energy levels badly.

I am trying to stop thinking about the things I have not done and focusing on the things I have done. In started with writing a post about all the items of clothing I have made so far. it was a lot of fun. Tomorrow I will write a small to do list. One which I will complete easily.

Today’s word count: 1200

One thought on “Positive Coping Mechanisms Ahoy!

  1. I often worry about not having anything to give more than a simple, yeah I’m OK, when times are tough. I find asking something general about them a good reaction technique – I have general standard questions I call upon! Then there are the times when I worry about sharing too much – I can be way too open with complete strangers and say the strangest things out of nervousness sometimes! Away from crafty situations I actually find socialising really quite difficult sometimes!
