I know that feeling. I'm feeling it right now actually. I don't know if this will help at all, but I like the way you write. Your words are meaningful to me. Your post made me reflect on my own all-or-nothing tendencies. I get what you said about it not being a simple intellectual choice, too. That's always bothered me that I can clearly understand partial success and incremental progress and then go right back to feeling like today is either going to be the day I run a marathon or a complete couch potato day.cyanidebreathmint wrote:I feel like I'm doing this post wrong.
I think you might be onto something there, but I want to be sure I completely understand your point. When you say "detached" do you mean detached from our feelings? For most of my life, I've felt not quite right. I was very aware that I couldn't engage in the world the way other people did because of how I felt. The way I felt was often so troubling that I tried not to feel it, tried to ignore it until it hopefully went away. That's what your line about being "hyperaware and detached" made me think of. Did I miss the point?cyanidebreathmint wrote:Sometimes I think it's the fact that we can be weirdly hyper aware and detached
