I need you to hold me accountable. I’m writing too much about my damn self. See, even right now I’m writing about myself.
What brought this to mind? Well, that book I’ve been reading. Michael A. Singer’s book. Want to hear the quote that really struck a chord with me? Here it is:
Why do we have to think about ourselves all the time? Why are so many thoughts about I, me, and mine? Look how often you think about how you’re doing, whether you like things or not, and how to rearrange the world to please yourself. You think like this because you’re not okay inside, and you’re constantly trying to make yourself feel better…The only reason that you think about your psychological well-being so much is because it has not been okay for a very long time. It’s actually quite fragile in there. Just about anything can upset the psyche.The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, pg. 91
Yep, that hit me directly in the brain, heart, and well, pretty much all over. What is this blog’s purpose if not for that? To make me feel better about myself? Meh. I don’t want that. It’s time to do some thinking and understand why I write this blog each and every day. Is it simply a mask for how poorly I’m actually doing? I mean, it’s not like I hide that fact from you lot, but still. Definitely something to think about.
I wish you well. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.
