follow me on mindfuladdict.tumblr.com i remembered when i was 17,i injured my sole. i told myself, and my parents and family told myself, not to do anything over your limit. i felt guilt for trying too hard that time, i blamed myself for trying too hard. and i developed chronic pain on my soles. mimicking plantar faciitis. so, since then, i never wanna do any sports over my limit. cuz i have that phobia, of injuring myself or re-injuring my old spot. and then i trained hard on my 24, wanting to climb a high mountain. because of final exam stress. i din train at all while my partner keep giving me pressure asking me to train hard. and after my final exam. i have 2 days of training. i trained hard, running uphills and setting maximum inclination at gym . i did over my limit, cuz i know the mountain is high, and i have to do it over my limit. so, i did, and i was fooled by my unconscious mind. that if i do anything over my limit, my unconscious will try to protect me from doing it, hence giving me pain. when i was on my flight to the mountain, my pain got worse, and become frozen, i literally couldn’t walk. and i gave up on the mountain, waiting for my fren to reach the peak and come down to c me. so, i got better almost within a day. n within 2 days, i can walk, go snorkelling and do anything without pain. but after that, i came back to my college place, i played some football with friends, and then, ALAS, i got a recurrence. its really bad. as you can see. my pain, is triggered when i did something vigorous, when i did something over my limit. my subconscious tried to protect me from harm, cuz deep down, i had planted a seed in my subconscious, that if i do anything OVER MY LIMIT , i get pain.that i should always “DO ANY ACTIVITY WITHIN MY LIMIT TO PREVENT INJURY” i felt sorry for myself now because of i planted that seed. now , i either wanna plant another seed to counter it, or simply to remove that seed. u will find ur reason for ur pain too. just keep practising. cheers.
