Procrastination enables me to:
- Not engage in vulnerable relationships
- Have the escape of always feeling busy
- Keeps me as a rehearsing victim
- Helps me avoid painful truth
- Helps me feel entitled, stay lazy
- It feeds my fears and my shame voices
- Keeps me devalued, easily comparable – never amount-able
- I stay confused, helpless, needy
- Ties me to past mistakes – my regret reel
Procrastination means I’m struggling, need help, need empathy, craving worthiness and that I need rest.
I can recognize procrastination – ask it for a diagnosis then acknowledge how far I’ve come. I can remind myself of my worth, be gentle (take a bath or nap) and then leave it alone.
Then I can ask for help … or help someone else.
