Negotiating with myself

I think my EMDR is really helping. Today was a very good day. I got lots of things done and I didn’t let anyone’s bad mood get me down.

Now I’m negotiating with myself: “If I get up and get the last load of laundry, I can also get up and get some cocoa.”


Tonight’s Pep Talk

To self: That was enough for one day. Good job! You talked to people. You smiled. You didn’t use poor boundaries. You met your needs. GOOD JOB. Next time won’t be as draining and you’ll walk away feeling even more confident because you’ll be even less hyper vigilant about what other people think. Good job! You’re making progress! Smile and love yourself.
