Introduction: Hi Everyone
Hello! I have been a procrastinator for what seems like most of my life. As the years go by it gets progressively worse. It was easy to get away with in mid-school and high school. Got a bit harder in college and as an adult in the 'real world' it is terrible!!
Due to my procrastination, I have dug myself a deep hole that scares the crap out of me. The thing is, I know what I should be doing. I even know what I want to do. But something stops me from taking action. To the outside world it looks like I just don't care and that I am lazy but that is the farthest thing from the truth. I DO CARE! There are so many things I want to do and be but it's like my mind and body automatically become paralyzed with fear and then I start to overthink things which leads to more fear. This is when I usually escape into mindless activities including day dreaming, surfing the net, tv, etc...
I am sick and tired of not living my life to the fullest. Tired of feeling like a little mouse stuck in a maze with no way out. Deep down at my core, I know my true self is there waiting to be set free and it's time to start knocking down the wall, piece by piece.
I am very, very grateful I found this group. After reading through some of the forum comments and articles it is very comforting to realize that I am not alone in this.
Thanks for reading.
