    Hey Aimie, Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I can relate so much. I wish you all the best for tackling your fears and taking steps towards your goal. I do have mixed feelings about the timeline you set yourself though. Talking from experience it didn’t work for me putting myself under pressure saying until then I get it all figured out. It only resulted in feeling more like a failure when it didn’t happen. I do think seeking professional help is wise because sometimes our set goals are just so out of reach and those baby steps are actually huge accomplishments. And its good when someone tells you. But everyone is different. Wishing you all the best on the way, Tobia

      Thanks for your support! To clarify, when I said I was going to do all of that “this year”, I meant I was going to get started. I know it will be a long road and I am trying not set any deadlines for myself aside from taking this first difficult step. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing, I too have these feelings and they can be really damaging to ourselves and our relationships because we are dealing with so much and life seems like more of a hurdle. It is important to talk about these things with loved ones and like you have in a blog because people do suffer from this all the time. I wish you lots of luck in changing things around by the end of the year! you can do it! I think it is a great time to make a change, right before the new year to start fresh. I could really use a change too, and just talking to myself more about people thinking things about me and negative self-talk. All the best!

      Thank you. I hadn’t considered the idea of starting fresh for the New Year, but now that you have said it, it does sound nice. It sounds hopeful! I also want to wish you luck in making the changes you need to make. It’s a great time to start.

    I can really relate to the feelings you describe. I worry about people not liking me, and if people don’t text me back or cancel on me when we’ve arranged to meet up I take it really personally. I think I’m at a stage where I’m able to push through my fears a bit more. I’m not sure how I got to that stage, perhaps it came from just pushing through and learning from those experiences. I think you’re doing the right thing but seeking professional support because these fears will only continue to hold you back. I hope you keep us posted on how you’re doing. If you ever need a sounding board then I’m here 🙂

      I will definitely keep you posted. Thank you for your kind words and support. It helps to know that someone else has gone through (and in a way is still going through) these same things. It helps me believe that it is possible to get through it.
