..is worry's first cousin. They are more like friends or partners in crime. Doubt whispered to me and said "why is this time any different than all your other efforts?" Doubt says "why bother, girl!" And worry chimes in "it's always gonna be hard for you, it will never get easier, you will always struggle with your weight." Doubt and worry cloud my head and try to get me to think about the big task at hand instead of all the little things I can do each day--the things that matter and add up to those big, seemingly insurmountable goals
I need to leave doubt and worry behind, once and for all. They have never helped me in any situation.
