    This part of your article resonates so much with me:

    “I let myself get overwhelmed easily. To the point where if things get too much to handle, I want to throw up my hands and run away. I’m like this in all areas of my life, even to the simplest of tasks. For example, even if my house gets too messy or the laundry gets to be too much, I am totally overwhelmed and unable to start. In order to counteract my procrastination or unwillingness, I try to make sure that everything is kept up on.”

    I always allow myself to become so overwhelmed and paralyzed by just starting the darn task – whatever task that might be. I do it with household stuff, with my writing, with my day job- pretty much with everything!

    I keep telling myself “Just do the darn thing! And it doesn’t have to be perfect!”

      It can be so hard to start, that’s for sure. Sometimes I think that I put too much thought into the whole process. Thanks for your comment and taking the time to read Kelli.

    Hi Amy,
    Thanks for being so brave to share your personal journey! Your post reminded me of a book I read a few years ago called Attached. I found it really interesting and it put a lot of human behaviour into perspective for me. I think you would really enjoy it!

    Wow, thank you for sharing your story with us and giving us an insight into your life. Sometimes we do let other’s emotions get to us or we stand in our own way.
