I’ve had a couple of setbacks in the last few days, being turned down for jobs, auditions and suchlike. It’s a bit disheartening, but in spite of this I’m feeling fairly positive. I may not be making much progress, but at least I’m realising what direction I want to go in.
Even so, it’s not been especially good for my self-confidence. I must keep an eye on myself, and make sure I don’t give up.
The next couple of weeks are going to be hard. Exams are coming up, stress is building. I’ll need to focus on not letting that decieve me into thinking bad things about myself, my life or the people around me. The problem isn’t with those things, it’s just a (unhelpful) reaction of my mind to the pressure.
I also need to not beat myself up every time I don’t succeed in this!
I really need to do this right now, but it’s hard. I feel so unhappy.
That said, even reading the name of the goal has made me feel a little better.
