Over 7 Years

February 25, 2016

It’s been almost 7 years since I posted to this particular blog. My original blog doesn’t exist anymore and my domains have all expired.

I’m dealing with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty and general Bad Brain Days that have me wanting to just sleep for several months at a time. I don’t know what to do to get past it. It sucks. Met with our pastor to discuss some of it and the idea of self compassion came up. It’s not something one thinks of often. We have compassion on our friends, family, kids, coworkers, etc. It comes very naturally to many of us. But having compassion on ourselves is something that just doesn’t work for some of us, myself included. I can’t be sympathetic to myself because I am myself. It’s hard to take pity or empathize with yourself. But it’s what I need. I think.

I need rest. Peace.
