Pushing the barriers of my comfort zone


This year I have made a conscience decision to push the barriers of my comfort zone, in all areas of my life including how I dress. Suffering with anxiety often means I stay safe in my choices, not wanting to do things that I am uncertain of, do things a way I haven't before or just do something new, BUT I am working on that, taking small steps, never giving myself to big a challenge, where I would be set up to fail, instead congratulating myself on all achievements however small.

For me certain items of clothing are safe, people won't notice me wearing this, I won't draw attention to myself, people won't think I don't suit this, or am to old or the wrong body shape. That item for me is jeans. They are my comfort blanket, and probably always will be, but I am starting to try new things, I've branched into trousers and now this cute spotty skirt. In order to make this "safe" I toned down the girlieness with a band T-shirt, vans and a denim jacket. That's because I've never identified with being particularly girlie, and If I was to wear a girly outfit, I feel awkward like I would attract comments, probably not true, in reality I'm sure most people do not give a shit what I wear but the brain is a powerful thing.

Maybe one day I will get braver how I wear trousers and skirts, but for now small steps.
