Lovely Boyfriend and I have resolved to go for a walk every day, come rain or shine. Yesterday it was shining, today it’s raining fit for Noah!
By myself, I’d be more than tempted to give the whole thing a miss but Lovely Boyfriend is determined to help me get my mood up and exercise will do that.
It’s always best to have support when getting back up from a mental health fall. Someone to keep you going and be there to put the pieces back together; someone to give you a hug/kick up the backside as required.
Perseverance isn’t easy for those of us with BPD; failure is so impossibly painful to handle that it’s often easier to give up before you ever begin.
But we’ve got to learn to handle our moods before they start handling us…which means I’m going for a walk in a winter rainstorm!
