Day #5 – 11/12/21

I honestly am really happy with this day and how it happened! In general, the only thing I think I struggled with was Regulation, as I don’t have a sleep log prepared for today, and I am now slightly off my showering schedule. Perhaps I struggled a bit with Resolution, as I didn’t get much work done this day, but I think that’s balanced out with how I used it towards Sincerity. Besides that, however, everything else went well. I decided not only to spend time with friends after school, both through Board Game Club and through a sleepover, but I did so while allowing myself to do the things both I and my friend Enjoyed. Furthermore, I felt mentally present for most of the day, though I did catch myself picking at my skin a couple of times. I think having someone who I can talk to somewhat easily in Calculus helps, and I was able to work on a couple of my American Eyes while doing so. Sincerity was easily my strongest suit though, as I was able to discuss some conflict between peers to one of my teachers, and she was willing to listen which was wonderful. I am just reminded of how important it is to state what makes you uncomfortable to people who are willing to do something about it, and how comforting it is to know that they have.

I hope to keep the pattern of Sincerity up, though I know I’ll have to work on some Regulation this Saturday to make up for the missed log.
