Evaluate your Progress

Evaluate your Progress

To know whether your strategies are working and if your circumstances are improving, you will need to carry out an evaluation. This will mean going back to the SHARE assessment and comparing where you are now with how you were when you made it.

Possible outcomes are that things have improved, in which case your strategies are working and you should keep doing what you are doing. Or things may be much the same or even worse in which case you need to rethink what you are doing.

Another, not uncommon, outcome is that things are much the same but YOU have improved. Having a perception of control over the situation can make a huge difference.

  1. My situation is improving a little….I was haphazardly doing some of these strategies already, but since looking at how important these strategies are, I have been more diligent in following them….my S.O. came home drunk after spending the day having “lunch” with his daughter who is an alcoholic also…I immediately went to my room and did not engage with him…he asked me if I was coming downstairs..I said a firm “no”….
    He usually comes to my room to harass me and a fight ensues, but it didn’t happen this time…I was pleasantly surprised….I have to keep strict on NOT engaging with him when he gets drunk….I used to engage….not anymore…
