A Journal Entry

Don’t Let It Ruin Your Day.

In life everyone has good days and bad days.

But it is up to each person if they allow things that are beyond their control to ruin their day.

My mind often overthinks things that I cannot control or that I do not agree with.

I often want to seek comfort because my brain is in flight mode caused by anxiety.

That is not going to go away, but it is up to me how I conduct myself or what I allow to bother me.

In the grand scheme of things, having looping overreactive thoughts only depletes time from where I can find something productive or enjoyable to do.

I catastrophize and overact that it is often the worst thing to happen to my day in my world.

If I just stay in my own lane and not allow my brain to fill up with the things that I cannot control, then I do not get angry later because I have exhausted so much time being useless.

If I could just go to the tools that I have written down to get me out of that point instead of choosing close ones to lash my verbal fury on because I think they will validate my feelings and rid the situation for me, but I know that is not going to happen.

Changes to things that I am used to, things I do not agree with, just because I have to adult, these are the things that I oftentimes put out of proportion.

In reality, I just need to live the life that I want while doing what I know I need to do to be well and let things be the way they are as long as there is no harm done to myself, then that is for the best.
