We think, therefore, We are
Thinking may seem automatic and uncontrollable, but many of our thought patterns are habitual and, well, thoughtless.
We mistakenly believe we are the thoughts, but if we witness those thoughts and don’t get entangled in them, we slowly realize we are not those thoughts but something else, looking at those thoughts.
We often feel like we don’t have time to declutter because we’re too busy consuming new stuff and information. But at some point, all this busyness leads us to mental and emotional exhaustion.
The more we procrastinate on something important, the worse we feel about ourselves. The worse we feel, the less motivation we have to get moving on our work. The less motivation we have, the more we procrastinate with mindless distractions. It’s a vicious cycle that traps you in self-recrimination and anxiety.
In fact, nearly every negative thought you have relates to the past or future. It’s common to find yourself trapped in a looping cycle of regretful thinking or worrying thoughts, even while feeling desperate to escape the never-ending tape playing in your mind.
The more we ponder our despair, the more despondent we become.
