I’m trying to learn the lost art of compartmentalization.
I’m not running away from my problems! I just want them to live in individual mind boxes with very tight lids.
I heard this particular coping mechanism allows a few minutes each day to open the anxiety boxes, worry about the insides, and then put the lids back on & go about the day. This is the answer I have been looking for. Scheduled worry time!!
I feel like I’m about half way there. Like, I have found nice, spacious boxes for all of the lunacy in my head. I simply cannot find any proper fitting lids! My money/bills box is really tipping over & spilling everywhere lately. Like, we accidentally spent $50 on some airport breakfast this weekend & I convinced myself we were going to run out of money entirely because of it. I was like, “OMG, Garrett, what will we do??? How can we make up this money????” He was all, “Umm we go to work tomorrow??”
I’m thinking I’m going to need locks on my compartments instead.
