When your unwell, it can be easy to fear things that others would do without thinking. You have all your extra symptoms and medications to consider. But stepping a little bit outside your comfort zone can be incredibly rewarding. It can make you a stronger person, and give you a real sense of achievement. I'm not suggesting that you do something you're absolutely terrified of. That would really knock your confidence, and could lead to extreme distress. But doing something that is a bit of a challenge, but still achievable, can be great for your confidence.
Take yourself on a little adventure. Do something fun, that pushes you a little bit. Take someone close to you with you, and go and have some fun. Try going to a public place, even if you're a bit scared of crowds. Or pushing yourself to go bowling or rock climbing, if exercise is a bit of a challenge for you. You will find it incredibly rewarding.
What can you do to push yourself outside your comfort zone?
