Part of my failure to launch stems from my irrational fears surrounding my ridiculous expectations of quitting. So by not taking action, I am actually choosing to stay in this cycle of self imposed torment. What fun! LOL. I am absolutely awful at tearing my self down when I am fighting with myself. And I am a very mean fighter. Thanks to some very kind members on this forum I have not been doing that as much. When I find myself heading in that direction, I literally just ignore those thoughts & redirect my brain. It isn't always easy, but it isn't as hard as I thought it would be either.
I often tell my middle child that complaining about something doesn't change anything & if he is so unhappy with whatever it is bothering him at the moment, he has to take action. Make a change, do something that makes a positive impact. So basically I give him advice that I, myself have failed to take. How very hypocritical of me.
It is almost 1:30a here (& I am very tired) but I am launching folks. I have a 3 day weekend ahead & I am gong to use those three days to get this final quit going. I am hopeful that I will be able to easily distract myself if necessary because I have no real plans on Saturday or Sunday. So here we go...
