I’m having a hard time staying focused on what is truly important. It’s so easy to ride the wave of self-righteous fury that comes from perceived wrongdoing. It doesn’t help me grow, except in the sense that I’m acknowledging it. Spending some time thinking about a good friend (picture relevant), hoping to draw some wisdom.
I should be more mindful of self-acceptance. I spend too much focus on feeling miserable about the things I can't (or don't) do because of where I'm at mentally. "It's a vicious cycle" is so overused, but more often than not it's true, for me at least.
I don't know anything about neuroscience, but TV tells me that the "default mode network" is a pain point for people with General Anxiety. I tried going back to mindfulness meditation, but when I'm busy obsessing over every mistake I've ever made, it's hard to bring to mind unless it's to tell myself that it's another thing I've failed at.
So... here's a reminder for me I guess.
