Re: Do you worry a lot?
This is positive! Well done!
After I left a toxic work environment, one of my colleagues (a young guy) was on the receiving end of some of that work crap. Whereas I asserted myself - he won't; too shy and lacking confidence. It knocked him for six. He told me he hadn't gotten out of bed all weekend as a result of worrying about it. I instructed him to stop looping Radiohead, get dressed, get out and grab a coffee. I suggested he speak with a doctor / professional if he hadn't bounced back by the following week. He sent me a text that week saying he'd been to the gym and was starting to feel better.
Movement is great... whether that's mentally, emotionally or physically... keeps us going forward. And sometimes reaching out to others for support can inspire that movement. Good job, Diedre.
Thank you so much! I'm very relieved lol and also happy that I didn't let worry overcome me the past few days, and this thread helped! It is kind of crazy when we think about it, that we sometimes create our own problems, when in reality, things end up working out. My fiance points out that ''if'' things don't work out as you might want them to, you'll deal with it, and figure something else out. So I'm starting to think more like that.
I'm glad your colleague is feeling better! Yes, it's funny, I take care of myself by eating right/working out, but really getting a handle on worrying is just as important.
