Just in case you were curious, Anxiety Annie is hanging out with me today. “Well now that you have closure. That’s it for you. You’re going to get Covid, because you deserve it for going to such a large event during a surge. Not only are you going to get Covid but you are going to get hospitalized and die.” Thankfully, when she says catastrophic stuff like that, it’s easier for me to tell her to take a step back and stop assuming the worst. Other times she’s a lot more sneaky, and I have to recognize if she’s being helpful or not.
I’m sure she’ll come up with more thoughts today, but she’s less persistent thanks to my morning medication :) It’s easier to reason with her when her voice is a bit quieter.
Shhhh Annie, you can relax. Sometimes you have to let life happen.
