I had my counselling session and as I was walking home an interesting thing happened.
I was about to turn round a bend tightly, and there were people heading in my direction and people walking in a different direction, but we were all going to cross paths.
Which we did, and I had to do an awkward shuffle out the way.
It was only as I was walking away I noticed something.
My heart rate wasn’t elevated.
I wasn’t playing an inner monologue berating myself for my inadequacies.
I wasn’t hyperventilating.
You may wonder what the big deal is, well when something like that happens-people coming too close to me, not doing something ‘perfectly’ I get anxious and feel bad and often needlessly panic.
It may be early days but I am taking that as a win.
