“Focus on the step in front of you, not the whole staircase”
Where are my fellow anxiety people?!
This has been a perpetual issue for me. I get so focused on the entire staircase, that I can’t even begin to think about taking the first step. It all builds up, and leaves me feeling completely overwhelmed and incapable of handling anything.
That’s exactly how I’ve felt during the Covid-19 pandemic. So many changes have happened so suddenly, that it’s like having a rug yanked out from under you! Instead of being able to focus on the few things that HAVE to be done immediately, I find myself stressing over the monster things that are in the future to be done.
Life is hard right now. 2020 has been anything but a basket of peaches, but we have to learn to take it a day at a time. You don’t have any control over anything or anyone except yourself, so take time to focus on you and your own personal steps.
We’ll climb the staircase, it just might take us a little longer.
