Ok, I'll read it tomorrow.

Idk how my practicing is going. I'm still having trouble recognizing the bad thoughts. But I really am trying.

I'm going to bed though, goodnight.

Thanks pixy

I read the latest article Prairie. It was interesting. I never really thought about short term and long term confidence. I guess I felt like you either have both or none? I definitely don't have a lot of confidence. I have a hard time looking people in the eyes, but for some reason, not when I'm at work. I have no problem looking a parent in the eyes or the kids. Maybe that's because I feel like I'm the 'authority' figure?

And I have little confidence with rejection, mostly because I don't have a lot of experience with acceptance, so each rejection is magnified. I do have confidence with things that I'm good at. Like I was a good pitcher in baseball and I know I'm a hard worker. I also have a hard time with compliments that I feel are overdone. Like, I could handle someone saying something like 'I like your shoes', but I feel uncomfortable if someone said, 'you're a great person and are worthy of being happy'.

But when I get out of the shower, I'm going to try to write in the journal finally. I'm just going to try to not think and just do it.

Happy Friday! Reward Day! I hope you did something you enjoy :) How do you think it's going with daily manageable goals?

I hope I didn't already post this one - let me know if it's a repeat. I have one for tomorrow too - I'll post it once this one's read.

Maybe I'll have a few drinks today since it's going well? Not sure if that's the best idea for a 'reward' but I did yesterday and I felt really good.

The article isn't a repeat, and I glanced at it and looks like it will be very helpful!

I am getting ready to write in the journal, but I'm wondering how I should do it. I'm just very picky about these things.
I want to know if I should just write it and leave spaces for a check mark or something, what colors I should use, etc. :)

The only person seeing this will be you (unless you show it to somebody). Maybe write the date, what the goal was, and then a box or a space after it to put a check mark. That's one way to do it. Sometimes people use charts, but I don't know if you want to draw one in your journal - probably a list makes more sense for that. I know I'm not being very specific, but it's hard when I can't see the journal - and I don't know how you want to lay it out.

You can google images for "weekly goal checklist" or something, and see different ideas. If it's easier, you might want to write in a day planner instead. Then it's already layed out for you, with the dates and everything. I like to use the Weekly At-A-Glance ones.

Sorry that I didn't read the article last night, but I just read it now. I didn't really like this article. I mean I did, but I found it repetitive or that it talked about stuff I already know. So I did like it, but just not as much as the other ones.

Like...I know that I need to practice social skills and I know places where I could. It's the 'getting myself to do it' that's hard. If I'm at the store, I can never get myself to just talk to a stranger. The closest I get is saying 'thanks' to the cashier or something like that.

I am able to talk more at my job. I have no problem socializing with the kids, but I think anyone would be fine with that. And I can talk to the parents and the other workers fine. I think that's because it's part of my job and interacting with people outside of that isn't my job.

Okay - Maybe this one has some ideas of how to get yourself to practice with strangers a little more easily:
