Thankful Thursday: New Experiences

So, this past Saturday, I ovaried-up and dragged my socially anxious self to San Diego LGBT Pride. It’s not an event I usually would have gone to by myself and it’s also not an event that a lot of people I know are very interested in. So, unfortunately, it’s not an event I’ve ever been to even though I’ve always really wanted to go.

It was nerve-racking, but I pushed through it for the new experience.

And I’m so glad I did.

With my anxiety, it’s easy for me to forget how rewarding new experiences can be. They’re a good distraction from the Depression Monster, I get out of the apartment (which means one less day sitting around thinking about how lazy/useless/boring I am for never going outside), and I usually end up enjoying myself. And even if I don’t enjoy myself, I always end up learning something new about myself.

Discovering more about myself is always a good thing.

Let’s have a toast to new experiences!

I love you all.

  1. One of the best things I could have done for myself when I was depressed, was to be social, even if I didn’t want to, and also picking up a hobby. Scrapbooking became my lifesaver, not just my obsession ♡
