To Be Ready or Not ready...that is the question

Posted by Angela2 on August 21, 2008, at 16:31:24

Today I was supposed to meet a friend about 20 minutes away from my house. But I ended up calling him to cancel. The thought "maybe I'm not ready" kept going through my mind. It confuses me because how do I know if it's true or not? (How do I know when I am ready and how do I know when I am not?) There will be times when I am nervous, regardless if I am ready or not. I can be nervous and be ready. I can be nervous and not be ready. I can be calm and ready. I can be calm and not ready.

The thought comes up a lot when I am nervous about doing something. Even when I am nervous about doing something that's good for me.

My old T told me once that if I think I will enjoy doing it or being there and am nervous, I should try to get myself there. If it's something I don't enjoy or care about and I'm nervous about it, it's probably OK not to go.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
