Down Days.

Today is a rough day. 

Today is like many other days I have. A day where my self criticism rockets and my self esteem hits the ground and keeps going. 

Silly things like looking in the mirror, getting dressed, scrolling through social media sites suddenly become mammoth tasks. They trigger a response that makes me want to hate myself and evaluate everything. 

I've tried for years to try and predict the triggers and prevent them but it doesn't seem to happen the way I plan. 
I fight the urge to self harm or hurt myself in any way by occupying my mind with other things. 

Reading for example. 
A good cheerful and gripping book can really take my mind away and fill it with better images. 

Another good thing is diary writing. 
Good if you can manage to keep up with it that is. 
Writing down all your reasons to be happy can be a great motivator to kick start the day in a better way. 

It's strange isn't it? How our minds can turn on us for no apparent reason?

Anyone else have days like this? 
If so, how do you deal with them? 

Thanks for reading
