What happens when all that energy you’ve been using to find help is no longer needed because you’ve found someone and are starting to improve?
Sometimes, odd as it sounds, it can feel like an anti-climax.
You’ve been on high research/seeking/hopeful mode for so long that it can feel quite discombobulating when you suddenly don’t have to do that anymore. Now you’re on a road to wellness – and it might be a long one – you’ve got to find a way to deal with the consistency, the daily grind almost, of pulling yourself forward one tiny step at a time. It doesn’t need hyped up energy – in fact, that will hinder your progress – it needs steady and calm dedication.
It is those people I find in-clinic who will get well the quickest, actually: think of the hare and the tortoise!
Anyway, here’s the post – another from the fab Dr Yanuck – that made me think of that. Here’s how he puts it:
Absolutely right. Keep calm. Keep focused. Don’t go off on tangents. Just keep plodding on and doing the work of getting well.
