Hey guys and girls,
I know: there are a lot of different accountability groups on this forum already. And each one has a different approach. Some try hard mode. Some try easy mode. Some try natural mode. Some just try to stay on a high streak.
Still, they all share one aspect: people get on streaks, post their relapses and in some cases then talk about why they relapse in order to be stronger the next time they encounter an urge.
With this group, I want to try something different. Actually, I don’t want to hear on which day you are (for some we might know because of diaries and other entries on here, but alas). And I don’t want to talk about a relapse. Not that I don’t care, but there are other threads and WhatsApp or Telegram groups to do that.
On here, I actually want everyone to think what they want to do other than PMOing. It might be something specific, like learning an instrument, advancing in their job, even getting a girlfriend if that is what you are after. Nobody will judge on your personal goals here. It might be something abstract or undefined like “getting more healthy” or “being happy more often”.
Then, let’s keep each other accountable on those things. Do small updates what you did to get there, if you made any progress towards your goal, even if it may be boring or not seem like something big at all.
Tell us you took a walk and what you saw while walking.
Tell us you wrote two pages of an upcoming paper for your studies.
Tell us you meditated for twenty minutes.
Tell us what made you feel good today
Just focus on the positive things, on what is good in your life - or getting better, slowly, but steadily.
I believe that this will help. I believe that some people might be surprised that a relapse doesn’t equal a complete loss anymore
So, who’s in?
