I seriously need to JUST STOP –
Take a step back
I am noticing my slightly “interpersonally paranoid” state kicking in, and I really need to slow down before I keep reacting to interactions with other people.
Fewer words, less texts, more space between exchanges, less over-apologising and justifying, less reassurance-seeking, curb the bitchiness and take a break when it feels too much.
The world is not going to implode if I don’t solve everything in this instant.
Cultivate Wise Mind; Breathe in Wise, breathe out Mind. Use your skills. Pause. Practice effectiveness. Label the cognitive distortions. Just notice. Observe, describe. Ask yourself “What is the threat?”
I literally need the STOP skill tattooed onto my eyeballs right now.
