I haven’t always pushed myself the extra mile. I used to do a lot of things to get out of therapy. I would run to the bathroom, to get food, or to the couch. This isn’t to be confused with medical or sensory issues. I’m proud of how far I’ve come. I had a big period of change and growth. I wasn’t happy with my life because I got bored being at home. I pushed for major life changes. I realize now that my life and supports were wonderful, it was my attitude that wasn’t. I wish I could take it back, but I can’t. What I can do now is apply myself and all of my energy to everything. I go the extra mile in everything that I do in therapy now. My therapists come over to help me and that isn’t something I will take for granted again. I am always trying to do my best to improve myself and I admire everyone trying to do the same, no matter how hard it is.
