You know that feeling you get sometimes when you question everything about yourself? I call it having a wobble.
I had one yesterday when I started to get pretty down on myself and wondered what the hell I’m doing. Mine was related to writing but wobbles can strike at anytime, usually when you’re on the cusp of a change or birthday! You wonder if your life is going the way your want or planned and whether you are good / clever / talented / pretty enough etc.
Why do we look down on ourselves like that?
I think it’s a fault of all us humans. We see the negative stuff far more easily than the good bits.
I was lucky that when I fired off some down emails to writer friends, I got support and encouragement back and I managed to go to sleep feeling just a little bit better. I’ve realised it’s better to talk it out, tell someone who you’re feeling than suffer in silence.
I woke up today to sunshine and some new ideas that make me realise I just need to re-focus and get some confidence and self-belief back.I need to chalk up yesterday as a wobble day and make sure today is brighter and better!
Do you ever have a wobble? What picks you back up when you do?
