Breakthrough

Although it’s not something I advertise, I’ve told a few people of my anxiety issues. It’s not new, I’ve been struggling with anxiety my whole life.

I’ve been working on ways to try and work through it, since overcoming seems a daunting task at this stage. Quite often I’ll back out of certain situations because I just don’t feel like I can face the people who will be there.

Yesterday I accepted a challenge. I’d been invited to a book club meeting, by someone I’ve known for since childhood but haven’t seen for years. I contemplated backing out, going over a plausible list of excuses in my head. I discussed it with a good friend who understands my situation and she encouraged me to face the fear head on.

I’m pleased to say that once I got there and just relaxed it went well; I’ll probably go back another time.

I’m proud of myself. I may not be where I’d like to be but last night takes me one step closer.

Lakeside

Every Canada Day, my daughters and I go down to the lakeside. We love to wade in and hang out in the summer sun. While they use their imagination playing with sticks and rocks and logs, I mill along the sandy shore, taking pictures and look for lake glass. Alas, there has been a lot of stormy weather lately, and it washed up quite a bit of debris on the beach. In any case, we made the most of it, and I got a few good shots.

Sympathy doesn’t equal Empathy

I think it’s a common mistake that people make, in believing that sympathy and empathy are the same. This cute animation spells out the difference between the two.
