What being stable means to me

Dare i say i feel stable? It’s a little intimidating to put it into a written thought. I know i should be formulating habits now to sustain me when I’m not so stable. It’s a work in progress.

Stable to me is not wanting to die… feeling joy again… and seeing positive in things. Oh and not ruminating. I still have a late night eating problem and a shopping issue so now is the time to learn to set boundaries for myself.

The eating issue i am not sure how to dig deep and find the trigger. I know therapy could help but dang it i just can’t connect.

I’ve decided i am going to have to learn self boundaries for saying no to myself. Because I’m buying things i don’t need.

I ultimately will plug on. One day at a time. Change doesn’t come in a day.

  1. Stability to me is similar. It is when I am at an even keel. Not mad, sad, or hyped up beyond belief. I don’t think I have ever set boundaries for myself in terms of my mental illness. I have boundaries like don’t steal, don’t fight, that is all I can think of. I don’t think I know how to set boundaries for myself or what I would need a boundary for? Can you share things that you feel you need to set boundaries for so I can get a better idea?

    1. I was thinking of it in terms of a relationship. We have to set boundaries on what we will tolerate and how we will be treated. So i want to be treated, to myself, as someone who won’t overspend. To make the relationship less toxic… does that make sense? I don’t know lol

  2. Change happens slowly and in small increments. The commitment to even one little change in a day is a good step in the right direction.
