Despite my best efforts to bundle up and dress warm, winter has been making exposure a bit more difficult these days. Perhaps I’m using it as an excuse to slip into avoidance patterns.
11F here today; I went for a little walk down the sidewalk near where I live, after I took the trash out. I used to walk around the block when it was warmer. Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m making excuses or if it actually feels too cold to stay outside for very long.
I haven’t been anywhere else this week, which is worrying me. Constantly obsessing over my progress. I’m very scared of the physical sensations that come along with panic.
