rerouting bad feels into better feels
so grateful for the work i’ve done to make my executive functioning better.
today, i had a bad night of sleep, felt kinda nauseous, then found a mess i had to clean, realized my tattoo isn’t healing as well as i’d hoped, and read a message from my ob/gyn that misgendered me.
in the past this would have catapulted me into a Bad Day and i felt the urge to have a meltdown, but instead grabbed easy food, sugary drink, and put on calming tv to avert crisis.
this takes so much practice and conscious habit-forming to learn how to do, but self-soothing and creating failsafes is so essential for nurturing long-term wellbeing.
