Yesterday at work, I facilitated a group of ten people hoping to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress.
Today, I’m experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress — not because of that group, but because of my own inner reactions to what I’m perceiving in the world around me.
Therefore, I shall now use some skills we discuss in therapy groups, including
- reaching out to supportive people,
- accepting what is,
- identifying achievable next steps, and
- focusing on positive images.
Here are some images I captured yesterday — the first two at work and the rest at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
I believe it helps to look closer, even at things that are difficult to see. For example, I saw this inside, at the Museum of Fine Arts.
When I looked closer, I saw through it, to the outside.
Seeing through to the outside, with this post, is helping me now.
Thanks for looking along with me, today.
