I want to get better.

I WANT to get better. I want to feel normal. I want to have automatic positive thoughts instead of negative, anxious thoughts. I want to feel carefree.

I'm going to continue taking my meds every day, and not (knowingly) skip any days.

I'm keeping in mind the stuff Kristen tells me to work on. Like yesterday, she did this thing with me where my thoughts are anxious and negative, by thinking "I'm worrying about...". Instead, turn them into "I care about..." so it's a positive thing.

Like, I worry about possible outcomes of a situation/scenario (like I trip and embarrass myself). Instead, think "I care about how other people view me", so it's not negative.

I think I do like myself for the most part. But I know I have some ugly habits, like the negativity.

I really do want to change.

    You are beginning an amazing process. Proud of you. It’s a form of CBT (cognitive behavior therapy). It never worked for me but I pray it does for you.
