Spending Time With Friends-Day 26 To 28 Of #365daysofselfcare

This Blog is part of the #365daysofselfcare challenge

Self-care is spending quality time relaxing with friends

rechargeLife has been full of so many wonderful things lately. It feels good to be able to say that after months and months of poor mental and physical health. I have been swept off my feet by a wonderful, kind and handsome man and he is responsible for all the smiling and laughing that is currently going on in my life.

After a particularly high Thursday evening and Friday morning, when this wonderful gent then asked me to be his boyfriend, (I know, cuteness overload!) I decided that the best self-care would be to recharge my batteries a bit, spending time with friends and resting up. I feel nicely recharged now and ready for the new week ahead!

IMG_20180514_000655_104One of the most difficult things for me to manage is my anxiety, which is at its worst when I attempt to be sociable. It’s a strange thing because l genuinely love people. However, being sociable makes me so anxious and l’m often left feeling utterly exhausted afterwards from the sheet effort of controlling my anxiety.

I find that my anxiety can easily snowball as lot of it comes from being embarrassed about my nervousness. I can act a little odd at times. l get super hyper and animated and end up saying the most inappropriate of things! The best thing in the world is finding friends for whom this isn’t an issue and l can completely be myself with, no matter the state of my mood. These kind of friends are priceless and a vital part of my self-care. I’ve recently reconnected with my old high school best friend and it’s like no time has passed at all. We spent some time together on the seafront today, eating cake and being ridiculous.
