Maybe I need to start by examining what I actually believe. Writing stuff down so I can remember my thoughts long enough to organize them. I hate that "forgetting what I believe" is a thing for me, and I have to work everything out from first principals every time. But it's what I have, so...

The ritual is just touching a pentagram tattoo I got on my wrist. I can use it to channel energies out of me, and call upon strength that I've had in the past. I think maybe the reason it works as well as it does is that it involves touch, creating an intentional stimulus to focus on, where usually when I try to meditate or ground I get distracted by all the sensations.
My therapist suggested I look for more rituals to find comfort in while I'm doing well, so I have more to fall back on while I'm not. And I know that's a good idea and I should, but I don't really know where to start?
I find it really hard to start believing something or feeling something work, and that gets really discouraging. Somehow I got to what I do have, though, and I want to replicate that. Because she's right, my one ritual is meaningful and as good a coping mechanism as Ive had
