Been a while since I've been here. Work is still very busy. but I asked for a role change, so at least I'm enjoying it a bit more. Also, trying to let people in more and let my guard down.

Proud of myself that I've been able to go to the gym for the past 2 weeks. Feeling stronger

Well done that's amazing :-)

Having a rough morning with anxiety and depression. I haven't been taking my medication regularly the last while. Thoughts spiralling out of control. Deep breaths. Time to take care of myself.

Stay strong! I'm going through the same thing so I know how you feel <3

Having a rough time at work the last while. Because I'm working such long hours, my life now revolves around work. Old feelings of inadequacy resurfacing. Need to let go of the past.

Indeed, you can't change the past. Guilt doesn't help you today. Sorry work has been so rough! Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Like project wrapping up or something at least?

We're coming towards the end of one of our busy seasons, so hopefully things quiet down in 2 weeks or so.

Long day at work. Body and mind tired. Can't wait for upcoming travel. Two months to go!

Where are you travelling, and for how long? :)

Received a text from one of my bosses at 8am (on a Saturday) giving me instructions for work she needs done. Umm.. no thanks. Not opening my laptop today. The 50 hours I put in this week is enough.

Having a really crap day at work. Being blamed for things that aren't my fault. Not my fault you haven't been paying attention...

I hate it when that happens! All you can do is try to let go of it. You know what's the truth, that's all tht matters.

Today I felt like time is rushing past, but I'm not sure if I'm actually achieving anything. Unsure about my purpose.

1) Purpose is a tricky one, because I think it's different for every person. But for me it's come through things which are meaningful, and bigger than myself, eg. volunteering, religion, etc.

2) I think it's also about leaving a legacy which can remain even after you're no longer here. That's why I recently decided to become an organ donor (after death!), for example.

Deep thoughts Phillip B. Hoping this helps Karen V.

I recently signed up for volunteering in March. Hoping that helps

Thanks Phillip, and everyone else for the hugs

Busy day. Got my free fitbit from work. Bosses paid for drinks after work. Nice to be rewarded for slaving away.

Had a convo with a colleague about stuff that's bothering me. Turns out I'm not alone. Feel a bit better now.

Hate feeling like people don't trust me. But I also don't know if it's just my insecurities making me feel like that. No one's giving me feedback either way, causing doubt #work

Stressing about work. It's our busiest time of the year. Worried about my procrastination habit..

Slept in. Rainy day, so staying in and reading. Work stress in the back of my mind, but wine is helping to put it off until tomorrow
