Your instinct might be to protect your heart and keep your guard high, but you can’t stay closed off forever.
There’s a chance they will push you away instead of pushing their partner away.
You don’t have to work yourself until you’re exhausted. You don’t have to keep going until you’re near tears. You don’t have to push and push and push yourself until you feel like you’re going to collapse.
Your goals are never-ending. You never have a break. You never allow yourself to pause, to recharge, to breathe.
You’re never going to be satisfied. As soon as you reach a goal, you’re going to create another goal, which is why you might feel like you aren’t meeting your goals. But your failure is only an illusion.
My anxiety makes it hard for me to commit to future plans because my mind changes by the day.
You’re stressing yourself out over situations that haven’t even happened yet (and might never happen at all).
You assume they are out of your league. You assume they wouldn’t have any interest in you. You assume they would break your heart. So you don’t even try to get to know them. You run away without even giving them a chance.
Which movie can you quote the most lines from?
You have intense mood swings because you aren’t taking proper care of yourself. You aren’t stopping to recharge. You aren’t pausing to deal with your problems. You’re ignoring everything other than your work because the only thing you care about is your productivity.
