The Yearning Octopus

The Yearning Octopus audit looks at the hierarchy of one’s yearnings and fears. It is important to look at both the positive and negative aspects and to assess where one’s actions are coming from.

A ranking of yearnings is also a ranking of fears and should be done from first principles, based on a person’s individual values and what matters to them. It is a balancing act between values and self-acceptance, and it is important to know when to accept certain parts of oneself and when to reject them.
