I was able to go eat in a restaurant with my brother, and I managed to properly remember my mindfulness and allow the intrusive thoughts in and let them out without dwelling on it.

My anxiety was still high and I was nervous the whole time but, I was able to eat at a normal pace and hold a proper convo with my brother and I am so proud of myself, a small step handled, I'm ready to keep going!! :cheer::woohoo:

I think you should credit yourself with thinking it is much more than a small step.

Well done... winning at mental health as you are demonstrating is not one big victory but lots of small victories that lead to a better life and mental well-being.
Keep up the good work 🤗
