    Are you still trying to do something good for you?
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    I finally saw the new Alien this evening, after meeting up with some people for a chat.
    I enjoyed both the company and the film. Drinking and overeating again though.
    I want to try to experience emotion without turning to bad habits to get me through but baby steps it is.

    Take care.

    Hi Suzi

    Yep. Not a patch on Aliens and the script was a touch paint by numbers so you know what will happen before it does but an exciting, well made, action film all the same with a bit of food for thought thrown in. Well worth a watch.

    Hi all

    Plans, plans, plans.

    I've discovered a new way of thinking, I'm almost feeling compassionate towards the parts of me I usually struggle against as an enemy.
    I'm seeing my drives towards self destructive behaviours as misguided attempts to keep myself safe.
    Today I am going to start trying to gently educate that part of me instead of trying to ignore it, repress it or beat it into submission.

    Plan one. Work. I have a habit of avoiding those jobs which open me up to the possibility of negative evaluation. This leads to procrastination and obvious problems with productivity, putting my financial future at risk. Today I am going to try to allow the fear to be there and crack on anyway.

    Plan two. Meeting some friends after work. I'm going to try to notice when I am slipping into 'safe' behaviour styles and try to act as I want to, not as I think my friends would want me to, to be more... well me.

    Plan three. I am intending to pursue plans to meet a new friend over the bank holiday, even though that is seriously scary as it opens me to the possibility of judgment and rejection.

    I accept my thoughts and feelings are a part of me but I also accept that I can control my actions.
    If I don't manage some or all of the above then it is not the end of the world, just a result of who I am right now, but I really want to try, which is also a result of who I am right now. Who I am right now is good enough.

    Take care all

    Absolutely you are good enough! I think that all sounds really positive!
