I started a new job job two weeks ago. And for the first time I recognized that starting a new job is stressful. It's always been stressful. I just didn't identify the feeling as such until now.
I also started a new medication, which is changing the way I'm feeling on a daily basis.
I realized that I've been fearing changes up to this point, and I've decided to try embracing them instead.
Instead of feeling anxiety about mistakes I'm sure to make in the future at this new job, I'm going to try feeling at peace with being new.
Instead of feeling guilty for indulging in compulsive behaviors due to the new medication, I'm going to forgive myself.
I recognize that transitions are only temporary. I am going to try being OK with exactly where I am at this moment.
