The race and the marathonI didn’t write anything at all today because yesterday I had a setback. And although minimal damage was done when bad habits come out doesn’t matter how minimal damage it triggers are it affected memories are brought up wombs are open and sometimes salt is thrown in them.
The one thing I have learned about dialectical behavior therapy it is not easy. In fact it is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in my life. Not only have I ripped it open layers of things that have happened to me throughout my life I am also working to change patterns of behavior that i Have exhibited since I was a kid.
My good friend used to always tell me there’s a sprinter and a marathon runner. The sprinter goes for the quick victory because that’s what you doing for a sprint. But life is not a 40 yard dash. Instead it’s a 70 to 80 year marathon. Results don’t come quickly goals do not get accomplished easily and hard work is required to make it all work out. In other words you have to keep the pace in order to achieve victory.
I have made some progress with my mental health over the last year I still have a lot of work to do and I need to remind myself that all those victories have been achieve the ultimate goal which is peace and wellness still is far away. I must keep working at it matter how painful it is but I will get there.
So who’s ready to run the marathon with me.
