flexible without getting bent out of shape.
At school our principal challenged us to do something new this year. Gear it up. I decided with the many changes and different request I decided that I would not let all the changes bend me out of shape. One of the challenges for a person living with PTSD or CPTSD is change of any kind. I do better with schedules that don’t fluctuate everyday. I am willing to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch every day of the week. I usually eat the same breakfast every morning. I prefer to drive the same way to work every day. I prefer things to remain the same. This year at work almost every day I have something that is changed up, messed up, rearranged or just not what I am expecting. I am working hard at developing ways not to be shook up by the changes. I am also trying to be careful not to drop back into people pleasing mode. Very dangerous and self destructive. I am working on a huge project after school and I am chipping way at it and working at not freaking out. I am so proud of myself for being so much better at changes at work. I also work with some awesome people that work hard to help each other. It is awesome.
