I’m a little bit late writing my gratitude post for July, because in all honesty I haven’t really felt like writing recently. But it’s better late than never, and as always, I have plenty to feel grateful for.
I’m not a very social person at the moment and I have a bad habit of shying away from social situations and making new friends.
This means that I tend to feel quite isolated and lonely, despite having a good relationship and a lovely family.
This month I tried to make more of an effort socially and I met up with my friend Holly who I haven’t seen for many years. We went to the zoo and had a really good catchup as we looked at all the animals.
It was so lovely to catch up and to push myself out of my comfort zone by going somewhere new.
I felt so comfortable and confident, all worries about food seemed to disappear for those few hours and my whole mood lifted.
It’s so important to take time to spend with friends. They’re such an important part of our lives and we should never take them for granted.
I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to re-connect with an old friend.
If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know that I’m now going back to therapy. I’ve been lucky enough to go back to the same therapist that I was seeing last year, so he already knows me and my problems.
I’m really grateful that I’m able to get this sort of help. We’ve really talked through my struggles and I feel like I’m really starting to make progress. We’re finding the real root of my problems, and I know that once the root is dealt with, everything else will just fall into place.
That’s it for this blog post, I hope you liked it! What are you grateful for this month?
