What are you proud of?


Big victories, small victories, everything in between. What are you proud of?


I'll start.

I struggle a lot with reaching out for support. I don't allow others to be there for me. I'm there for others, but I keep everything to myself. I don't want to be a burden or bother pple. Makes for lopsided relationships and a lot of resentment. No bueno. I've made A LOT of progress with this in the last few months. This morning (and last Thursday actually) I was struggling with a particularly difficult issue- I'm doing something very scary for me atm- and instead of bottling it up and suffering alone in silence, I reached out. And I was heard and soothed and cared for and validated. This morning I literally closed my eyes and pressed the button on the phone as quickly as I could cause I was completely gonna back out. But I did it. It was awesome. From emotional isolation to connection. One step at a time. Yay!


Also I used to sing All. The. Time, but I'm way out of practice. I started practicing again recently and I've gotten some of my range back and my riffs and runs are getting way better. Yay.


I'm doing well with my eating today. Super happy about that.


Your turn!

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

That's awesome @SparklingWater



Mine is a little one, but its.....


Remaining polite. I happen to believe saying pleases and thankyous CAN go a long way, even if you don't know it. And it's literally the lowest form of human decency even if you are having a moment when you hate the world and everyone in it (which is basically me right now)



Hope i can make more significant progress like you in the next few weeks

@Neddy123 That's awesome. We could all stand to be more polite. Good job even working on it. Sometimes the intention is enough to start moving things in the right direction. Good luck!

I finally got to rebuild my emergency fund again. It's at $118 right now. Feels really good.

My partner

She is slowly facing her fears of her life with her abusive ex

While you SCREAM at your woman, there's a man, wishing he could talk softly in her ear...

While you HUMILIATE, OFFEND, & INSULT her,
there's a man flirting with her, & reminding her, how wonderful she is.

While you HURT your woman,
there's a man wishing he could show her love

While you make your woman CRY,
there's a man stealing smiles from her.

That's amazing. Every little bit count. Feels good just to have that safety cushion.

Good for her. I'm glad she has your support as she faces what must be very diffcult for her. Hang in there.

I'm proud that I got a university degree. I don't think I will be able to top that. Everything else seems to be going south quite quicky.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Feel free to PM me if you need someone to talk to, or just want to vent, I don't bite

Told my doctor I hadn't self harmed in over a week and wasn't lying.

What's wrong with running away from reality if it sucks?

I asked my friend if she liked milk in Hebrew, and I only got one letter wrong.

I'm proud that I graduated from college with honors and that I keep fighting even when things are tough.

Thanks. It finally feels like I'm doing something right.

My second day of my little workout was a little better than my first. I been at it for 2 days straight. It isn't much but I really feel good about it. Especially with this workout video I had recently found on YouTube.
