First post.... Hi

Hi. I found this forum about 3 months ago but I've found it really hard just to bring myself to make this first post. So at this very moment, my intention is not to write too much, even though I have so many things I have wanted to say on this forum. I just want to make the first post. Hopefully as I continue to write this post I will gain enough momentum to write more about myself and my situation.

It took me 20 minutes to write the above paragraph. I deleted and re-wrote it about 10 times, trying to find the 'right' words. 
I'm actually getting quite emotional writing this, for reasons I don't know.
I've spent 30 minutes now just trying to write this and I'm feeling quite anxious physically already. So I've just decided to just post. Sorry if this is a terrible post. I just want to get this out the way.
I will post again soon hopefully.

Admissions like this are emotional

Admissions like this really are emotional, because they often reflect our own disillusionment with ourselves.  We like to think positive things about ourselves, so admitting a real problem with procrastination feels a lot like admitting serious failure.  There is nothing wrong with the admission, even though it does make you anxious -- and admitting the problem is an important first step.  It's not a "terrible post" at all.

Don't feel the need to tell your whole story in one post.  Work it out one piece at a time, as you feel comfortable.  We're here, and we know what procrastination does to us, inside and out.  Welcome to the group, and I hope we do hear more from you in the future!


Hi Steven,Well done to you

Hi Steven,

Well done to you in writing your first post. It obviously means so much to you and it is a positive step on the way to beating procrastination. I have only posted a few times but when I have I have felt so much better and have also made tiny inroads in my journey to regain control over my life.

I just wanted to offer you support and hope that you feel ok and are able to post again.

best wishes
