Support: What is it? A person or thing who bears the weight, stops you from falling.
Well, as I am falling right now, this sounds like a great question. Who am I reaching for? What is helping me to stop my fall?
I have called to talk to my Mum, and two of my sisters, all of whom offered great advice.. but no-one can make this decision for me. Just having someone to call really helped though.. maybe that is support. No matter what I choose I know that they would help me if I needed it.
Next I spoke to my husband. Now, whether or not he supports me is a big question. I know that he means well, I know that he wants me to acheive - but at what cost to him? I get frustrated that he cannot seem to do the housework or childcare/parenting as well as I can. That he wont do some things that I feel are important - but that is just who he is. It is not on purpose! I am looking to him right now to help me with my choice but he cannot stop me falling. I don't think he even realises that I am falling.
Things are tough right now. I dont' know if I want my PhD now - it has all gotten too hard. But am I just running away? Or am I making a wise decision based on reality? But withstanding that, why do I suddenly decide to withdraw from life. Why start making bad food choices, not going to the gym, not buying my plane ticket. Because I am stressed and I don't where I will be. I hate being undecided and up in the air. I just want a decision made and acted upon!
So who is going to stop me from me falling? Myself. I am my greatest support. I am the only one who can stop me falling back down into that hole. It is just a simple choice... I just need to say NO! To take that next step on the path I choose!
Now I am going to go get a cuppa.. print out my workout for this afternoon and then do some problem solving! I need to choose my new path!
