Day 8 of 31 Days of Self Love

So, today’s day 8 of the 31 days of self love journey. Today’s prompt is:

For me, I need to slow down with my assumptions and take the time to research things. I understand that part of this is due to my anxious mind, and keeping that in mind, I need to be vigilant about these thoughts. I’m a sensitive person and it’s easy for me to react to things that appeal to my emotions regardless of the facts. I often react before I’ve had time to process the situation or conversation.

I believe that by taking a moment to breathe. For example, sometimes I feel lonely and when I’m in that mindset, I will jump to the conclusion that no one wants to talk to me or hangout. I assume that I’m the only person lonely and in need of attention. Usually, I just spiral into a despair without reaching out to anyone, but I think from now on, I’ll try to take a moment to contact my friends and ask them if they have the time to talk or help me.

But this is me. What about you? Where in your life do you need to slow down and take your time?

    Hmm… for moi, it’s more about feeling the pressure to translate lotsa stuff in Tagalog and ask peeps to check ’em!
    ‘should tell moiself that it’s okies not to be able to do a lot of translation work and it’s okies that comrades moi meet aren’t available to help out in proofreading them…
    ‘also feeling a lot of pressure from paid/salary/proletarian work as well! ‘will try to remember that moi should not be too serious anymore with it and instead direct more of moi ENERGI towards translation, which moi definitely RABUs/LOVEs doing even though it sometimes gets hard, especially when moi doesn’t have anybody to ask for help or when moi is bothering moi partner too much when asking for better expressions and such!

    *joins Meddie in taking a moment to breathe every time first when we feel the impulse to react!
    sutte… haite… 「吸って、吐いて」
    breathe in…. breathe out….
