halfpintHi TT. It sounds like you are in a better place than before which is lovely to hear. We are all on a journey and like you I don't know if we ever 'get there'. Having a better understanding of ourselves and where our feelings are rooted is so powerful and that insight helps us relate to others.
My anxiety has been creeping in a bit lately which is ironic given I feel I am in a good place generally. I can recognise all of the positive qualities and attributes I have to offer, but also acknowledge and accept the other parts of myself. Having a better understanding of myself means I can make choices which are healthier for me. For example I had a weekend away this weekend and whilst everyone else was doing 3 nights I knew that I wouldn't cope with that long with this particular group and chose to come home last night. I had a lovely weekend but it was absolutely the right decision.

The TerminatorThanks HP. Glad you are able to make such decisions. I feel for me improved connection with myself physically, spiritually and emotionally is a key ingredient in my healing and staying resilient. Just this week I spent one less day walking the coastal path than I could have and have respectfully declined, cancelled or avoided certain, situations, events and offers of socialising as I know the energy expended or received would be detrimental to my overall health.
Much love all x
