I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time forgiving myself for my blunders and being non-perfect. I want to forgive me, but sometimes it’s just hard.
The loving-kindness exercise is one of the most mind-blowing exercises I’ve tried. For being able to increase your happiness, it’s almost too simple.
I wish I had the courage to do “that”. I wish I had the courage to be myself. Why is it that I’m afraid to be authentic? What am I afraid of?
Numerous of times in my life I’ve found myself at a dilemma “what should I do/pick?”. I used to have a hard time deciding what to do, during my years I’ve found some processes that have made it a lot easier for me to make a decision.
Almost a year ago I wrote Sharing Your Fears where I listed some of my fears. It was meant to be a reminder for me to actually face my fears. Truth be told I haven’t really faced my fears since then. I’ve been living too comfortable, I haven’t felt the need to face many fears, sure I’ve wanted it, but I’ve had a too good life—i.e. I haven’t been frustrated enough by my fears and still aren’t but I’m frustrated about something else, or maybe not frustrated. I haven’t really challenged myself in the past year, I have been challenged by other experiences but I haven’t challenged myself.
In September my social circle expanded quite a lot. During this month I found myself with more energy than before, but I was also more exhausted. To sum everything up I moved from one apartment into a student corridor (shared with 6 other people) and I started studying instead of just working on my own. It’s quite obvious that my social circle expanded due to those two things, but I’ve also taken more initiative talking to people and doing stuff 🙂 To my thoughts…
How often do you share your fears? Quite recently (February and March) I only shared a few of my fears to a partner. I thought that if I’d share my inner-most fears they would certainly come true, which in itself is a fear now that I think of it. A fear I had was telling another person I might had developed some feelings for them, I say might because I was unsure since it was a weird and not recognizable feeling. I feared that if I shared this with them they wouldn’t want to hang around with me any longer. The previous […]
Disclaimer: These are my thought In the order they popped up in my head. I wrote this to try to get some clarity. I’m not sure how good the content really is, it could be great it could be the worst post ever xD Recently I had 6 stressful events in my life. One stressful event vanished yesterday quite suddenly; this got me wondering why stressful events can become fine even though the situation hasn’t changed. One thing that did change was that I got an almost definite answer if I would get to keep my apartment (sublet) or not. Not knowing […]
So you’ve tried some desires, but which ones do you keep exploring when you aren’t certain that you’d like them or not? This is a continuation of my previous post today Try something twice before you abandon it; this post will be easier to understand if you’ve read it 🙂 What things should you keep on doing, which things should you try once or thrice? I asked this question at the end of the previous post and said I didn’t really know. I still don’t know the answer because I think the question is incorrect and actually asks two things. While I was brushing […]
After writing the blog post yesterday about desires a question popped into my mind; how many times should you try something before you decide it’s not for you? But I want to start in another end. How come I think starting a blog was something I’ve always wanted. If I feel this good the day after there must be some truth to the desire to write a blog—i.e. it resonates with my soul. That doesn’t have to be the case forever, but today it resonates. I love analyzing how I feel and why I feel it, and I think it’s good to […]
