Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: Have been feeling pretty lousy and not copping too well.
Positive: I'm still fighting through

Negative: I wasn't able to see Mrs K on Friday, and seeing my mentor didn't go to plan, she noticed something was up and then I unconsciencly did my best to hide it and cover it up, why wasn't I able to talk to her?
Positive: I tried. I accepted how things were and what had happened and tried my best to cope

Negative: I had a moment again in English, broke down in tears, felt completely lost and hopeless.
Positive: My teacher said how great my work was and that I should be happy with it, but quickly realised there was something more and questioned me but of course I shut down, and said she was there if I needed to talk.

Negative: I feel bad that I keep finding myself in that space, and not knowing how to get out of it. esp since it's occuring more in English
Positive: I'm trying my best

Negative: What my teacher said today kind of struck and scarred me
Positive: she only said it because she is concerned

Negative: Worried about my exams, not too sure how they will turn out,
Positive: I'll get through it.

Negative: After talking to my science teacher and thinking I think I need to change my mentor
Positive: I just need to figure out who I can open up to!

Pos: One @ a time....

 

Neg: What if it's choppy?

pos: So be it. I've already got half my mark. The exam is only 50% of my final mark. Even if I do badly, I won't fail....

Positive: I gave her my whole support, I gave her space and time, And I tried my best not to make a big thing out of our other friend who mis-interperated what I was trying to say

Negative: Thinking over what my mentor was wanting me to do tonight I started to get a bit anxious, and questions that stopped me in the first place came to mind
Positive: I faught through them reminding myself that she said she'd be more than happy to help me.

Negative: There is that little voice inside my head that doesn't want to comply
Positive: I trust her, I know I'm just over thinking this

Negative: Have been piggin out a bit on junk, and noticing that unless I eat healthy foods my mood drops dramatically
Positive: I've identified this and can set off to make sure we have salad stuff in the fridge so I can keep having salad buns Smiley Happy yum

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: Feeling as though I didn't do as well as I should have in my math exam ; feeling guilty because I didn't study until last minute and then I barely did anything
Positive: I did what I could. I've been trying to look after my emotional health a bit. I did the best I could in the exam with how I was feeling in the current time. And even if I get a bit of a dodgy mark who cares? The score does NOT measure my worth or how smart I am, it's just telling me how well I perfomed under pressure in one moment in time, it never takes into consideration anything else!

Negative: I didn't get to see my mentor today;she forgot
Positive: While I was a bit annoyed I realized that she's human. She did apoligize and was generally sorry as she had in all honesty forgotten. It made for a bit of a laugh. We organised to meet up tomorrow to go over these last two exams. And afterwards I might be able to see Mrs K as she said she'd be in and wants to see me.

Negative: I've had a few mixed emotions and reactions over some events today and have felt unsure and confused about them
Positive: I held myself together really well.

Negative: I've got a pain in my lower right arm
Positive: I'm sure it's just my muscle wanting a bit of TLC ; I've removed my bracelets to let my arm recover.
