This is one of those weeks during which I have had an ongoing internal struggle to fulfill all of my obligations and responsibilities to the people around me as opposed to becoming completely self-absorbed, shutting myself off from the rest of the world and indulging in my own sense of safety, security and comfort. I have managed to appear as though I am functioning normally and I have completed all of my routine tasks, as are required of me, week in and week out, but no one will ever know the battles I have fought and (barely) won this week, or how hard it has been for me not to give into the pain, frustration, weakness and anxiety that has been weighing on me since waking up Monday morning, so I’m giving myself a silent, congratulatory, pat on the back.

Sometimes, I have to be my own hero.

    Well done! I think the most important validation comes from within ourselves. Depending on external approval for things is risky; we may wait a long time for it or it may never come.
