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.

Thanks for stopping by! 🌸


About Bella

I've reached my 40's with a few battle scars, but I'm still in one piece so I guess that's something to be thankful for. Married for a long time...well, what passes for long compared to many of my other friends. Almost 20 years. 3 kids: a teen and two tweens. Heaven help me! There's a lot about me to know but I always think that others won't find me interesting, isn't that sad? Writing is my passion. It's an outlet; it's a way to filter my world and the experiences I have. Blogging was a foreign concept to me when it first came out. But I GET IT now. It's therapeutic to unload. It's fun to read about the experiences of others. This is my way of meeting and greeting, overcoming the obstacles of time and distance. My hope is that you will stop and read my blog. That you will enjoy what I have to say, and we can have a chat. You're welcome anytime!
