Texted my pastor eek....he's getting me set up for prison ministry...just anxious about what it entails and if I'll have free days to actually do it. I just want to be an option at least though.

I just did two presentations today. The first one was a mess, but I did it at least. The second one I only talked for maybe 30 seconds, so it was easy.

Fear of interviews


I fear giving interviews .I am jobless from last three years.(3 years before I breakup which led me into depression for almost 2 years ,lost job,was lonely,all my self confidence and self esteem shattered ). Now I want to put my life back on the track and get a job but when i go for interview I feel like running away.But I have started facing it and with each interview my confidence is increasing.

Sounds like a good move, turning it down. God has the right job for you, hang in there.

Not a fan of crowds or taking the subway. I attended a sporting event and not only did I enjoy the event but I dealt with the crowd okay as well. Subway didnít bother me either.

Introduced myself to a new employee at work and shook hands with her.

Also asked a question in front of a group. Big step for me

Did a phone call which I got super anxious about and failed and made it awkward, but hey.. I did the thing! Also fearing judgement and mistakes whilst applying/mailing jobs.

Playing board/card games with family. It can get intense with how competitive some of my family members are.

My Mood: Worried
Yesterday, someone moved out of the way for me. I had NO IDEA that they moved out of the way for me, and I was wearing headphones. When I walked past she yelled "thank you" passively aggresively at me as I didn't thank her. I had headphones on and was confused at what was going on, but then I realised. Then my SA started increasing massively. Started becoming tense, feeling like a terrible human that should never leave my house.

But I've been practising mindfullness like crazy so I was trying my best do detach myself from the negative thought.

And then I realised. It's not my fault she shouted at me. She misinterpreted the situation, and just assumed I knew that she moved out of the way for me. And that's her problem for just assuming things.

I heard a quote once "The reason why most relationships break down is because we assume the other is a mind reader". It is so true. When i think of all the people that have wronged me it's because i just assume that they should know what I'm thinking. But it's not true, and you gotta be communicative. And this woman just thought that I was a mind reader. And that's her problem. Not mine.

Everyday I can feel myself getting mentally stronger, and I love it
