that is all.
I’ve been pouting and crying about a few things lately.
I’ve been pouting less after reading the article, not because this story feels and reads as sadder than my own, but because it was a humble yet blunt reminder that we are all going through stuff all the time. We are all in need of a kick in the ass sometimes to help us not hinder ourselves by drowning in our own self-pity and wallowing. Even though we all must grieve at some point, how we grieve and what we do with that grief is the difference. Grieving the “couldawouldashoulda” moments are a waste of time – hard to let go of, yes – but a waste of precious time. Again, please click the link above to read the article. Worth it.
I once made this choice, many years ago in a more naive phase of life, that I haven’t been able to let go of for weeks. I don’t feel like writing about that part right now though – the choice I made – instead, I prefer to share what I learned about living with choices at all.
The alternative to not sitting well with your choices is having the anxiety shits for weeks, because you’re living with regret. And living with regret is the worst thing you can do to yourself, ever.
So, tip from the future: stewing in regret over the choices you didn’t make is the WORST mindfuck game you can play with yourself. I really don’t suggest it.
Trying to come up with a good idea is a lot like taking a shit- push too hard and you’ll hurt yourself.
