my advice to anyone reading this: if you ever feel disconnected from yourself, write down your fears on a piece of paper or in a journal. write down all of them that come to mind, even if they are “stupid” or seem to be redundant. just do it, because you are forcing yourself to face them. it reassures you why you might feel off, and it reassures you that you can face these things and make a change. it makes you connect to yourself again. it gives you perspective. it’s scary to face your fears, but writing them down is a start. once you see them in front of you, something clicks again. you realize you are afraid of a lot of things and how they are impacting small things in your daily life. it makes you aware of them and how that might explain why you don’t want to go to the grocery store, or why you are afraid of affection or why you are truly afraid of love. write them all down and keep them somewhere to look back at. it seems scary, it seems like it would be bad to have them constantly there reminding you of what is holding you back. but as you face them, you can cross them off. you can see your progress, and you can become aware of how to make them disappear. you can’t change anything until you face yourself, and the best way to face yourself is to realize every little fear you have. admitting your fears to yourself is brave, and if you are afraid you’re not, you can check that off your list first thing. you will regain control of yourself again, i promise.
if you don't mind....how did Cats have a factor?
