Jealous

Jul 18, 2018 6:15 PM

I’m jealous of everyone around me who has energy. It’s a daunting task to even brush my teeth and shower. Moisturizing my body making up my bed. Hell I don’t energy to call people back.
To everyone that see me see a shell of me but if I could turn myself inside so that they can see what’s underneath this shell, trust me they would much rather see the shell.

Don't feel bad. Most days I do well just to crawl to the bathroom.

We all do. Please do not be so hard on yourself. Do what you are able to without pushing yourself. This is much easier said than done. Look up spoon theory and try to live by it. Be patient we all understand what you are going through.

Me too! And then I get all pissed off that I never took care of myself properly back when I did have energy. I yearn for those days when I exercised and felt physically good. But I believe that all the emotional neglect of myself really contributed to where I find myself now and it makes me sad. Nevertheless, I agree “that it is what it is”, and acceptance of that is where I need to focus my energy rather than on being jealous or regretful. It’s hard for sure, but I’m working on it!

I live by the spoon theory. They say patience is a virtue.. I’m still working on patience. 🙂

Hanging in there 9/10 times is my only option. What’s great is that I come here and I learn I am not the only one. ❤️

At what point did my body slow down? Things just happened so fast.
