Thank you Jeff, Binky, Emma, Han (x2) and Max
sounds sexy, though. Crude. Yeah, i know. I cant un-guy my imagination.
Thanks for hugs pandas
Love, I am glad my post could give you something sweet to think about 😝
Very true. I agree
Dont resignate and get used to feeling unfulfilled. It is not how work has to be. Dont accept your bosses values and reflect after work, remember there is a beautiful world outside the prison.
I enjoy ny freetime, being with family, friends and do things outside. But work takes to much time and energy.
I guess there could be a more fun workplace for me somewhere else but feels stuck atm.
I understand! Keep looking for a job that's better (that's what I try) and sometimes even our hobbies can lead us to new paths and help to feel more fulfilled too xx
Idk. Albert camus said life is absurd and all we have to do is live through it.
I had this thought when I was paddling Lake Mead in the Mojave Desert. The strong winds kept me beached. I found shelter in a cove. I began reflecting on this. Did depression confer a survival advantage?
What evolutionary purpose did it serve? Being in nature for days at a time, I felt connected to All that is. I felt depression was a city disease. I felt that the calm energy which sustained me in the wilderness could not find proper expression in
the boxes we lived in. We were not designed for modernity. We are communal, but where is community? The sadness we often feel, I think, is a longing for connection: connection with one another, with nature, with our true selves.
That being the case, I think we can find peace by spending time in nature, being active, cultivating our social networks, altruism, meditation- all simple things- which can contribute to our well being.
Yeah, there is a lot to what your saying Love. But why doesn't everyone get effected the same way? Why does some of us have harder to adjust?
i imagine there are mang complex factors at play: health and physiology, age and gender, lifestyle, quality of social networks and interactions, perspectives, etc.
Isn't there also beauty in it that everyone gets affected differently? Everyone perceives the world differently, and I really like that although it's a bit sad. The more we talk to each other the better we understand and can also help xx
Yeah Kaya, I guess its important that we are different, thats what I am thinking, that all variation is necessary. Even the once that are concidered as weakness by orhers. How can we see that we are not weak, but necessary?
I feel like the weaknesses can be interpreted as strengths my others too & every message can be said positive and negative. Many people can gain strength from other people speaking up about their trouble. In the end people can struggle from the same
Kind of things but they won't realise until someone will speak up 💗

They address both questions: 1. What if our weaknesses mask our most authentic strengths? 2. the beauty of our differences
Thanks for hugs everyone ❤️
Thanks for expressing this. Was my reminder to count my blessings
Love, I went to a lecture about finding happiness the other day and he told us that number one to do is to be grateful. So I will try this again. See the good things and find gratitude.
I received the same reminder three times yesterday. Its a key spiritual principle.
When I was a child (10-11), Id blindfold myself just to experience what it would be like to lose my sight or I'd tie my hands behind my back to replicate paralysis. Without realizing it, I was cultivating gratitude & empathy.
Wonderful thought, I think it would do us all good to remember that.
Emma, I think this is the wrong approach. I know why you think like you do, I do it almost all the time too, but there's always something to be grateful for, most of the time the things we take for granted and don't even notice.All the little things.
Emma. Think of the worst thing that could possible happen.
What is the worst information you could get?
If you can come to think about anything, then you have something to be grateful about.
Perhaps one should make a poster of it and put up somewhere. 👍
I cant be grateful with what i got cause i do t have anything😔
That does sounds Logic, thnx Lydia
Thats what I say in my lectures on meditation.
Well, you are the wise one Love ❤️
Not wise, less stupid maybe.
