You’ve Got Mail …

Dear Diary,

Thanks again for your patience, I’m now making more of a concerted effort to write about the issues that I face on a daily basis, one of the most omnipotent being avoidance. I admit it’s an issue frequently, yet I don’t do much about it… lolz.

It’s been a long time, shouldn’t have left you …

Dear Diary,

I would like to apologise for my rather striking neglect of you over the last few months. I’ve been a bit of a meanie to you, haven’t I? Shall we kiss and make up? Why thank you, my dear, I missed you. It’s as if we hadn’t parted way for even a second, my sense of belonging with you in the here and now is somewhat refreshing for me.

Moving forward

Dear Diary,

As part of my recovery, I need to lead a more holistically balanced lifestyle, where my thoughts need to be more in-line for this to be achieved. I’d firstly like to express my gratitude towards all my friends past & present, for having put up with me! I’ve often been selfish, thoughtless, a tad outspoken or hidden away, cutting myself off. I would like to say a big thank you to you all for having been there. I cannot enunciate how grateful I am to have been or currently be part of your lives.

Hopefully things might be a bit better from now on

Dear Diary,

I’d firstly like to apologise to you for having neglected you for the last few weeks, as I’d been having a hard time. Consequently, I’d been disinclined to do much of anything, let alone blog I realise now that this was somewhat counterproductive as I’d been bottling my feeling up inside. I started this blog in an attempt at providing myself with some form of outlet for these pent-up thoughts floating through my mind. I say floating, perhaps a better description might be that of driftwood in a storm, banging against the sides of a small boat out to sea. The captain of this little boat was struggling to both stay afloat and commandeer a journey home without oars.

Havening: a psychological technique to lessen uncomfortable feelings

Dear Diary,

I had forgotten all about this technique. I was feeling anxious a few minutes ago & found it helped to alleviate the feeling a bit. I was distracted before I was able to repeat it, however it did help me.

I hope that it helps you, too! Something to add to your toolbox. :)
