mental health, anxiety 

I can’t speak for anyone else but I feel like learning to live with anxiety is really just recognising the shape and feel of it, and whilst obviously participating in it to grow an ability to observe it impartially at the same time…

Like I’ve been super stressed out by work recently and now that I’m beginning to feel anxiety about other things there’s an odd elation that the shift toward being anxious about things in my REAL life means I’m simply coming back to spending most of my attentions on my real life.

I’m off to get tattooed today, and late last night I had tattoo anxiety which I get when I’m tired, I was fine this morning when I woke up and now I have social anxiety to go and hang out with some people that I like.

Real dumb shit but it’s just how my brain works - looking for potential problems.

You can see where the fascination with the power of belief systems comes from - I can create problems for myself using the power of thought alone! Imagine if I could use that for something that wasn’t utterly pointless!
