I feel most rejuvenated and kind to myself when I make time to be in nature.

I really think people are generally good and kind, unless their needs aren’t met. I am homing in on which of my needs aren’t being met.
For example, I thought I needed reassurance from my VIP. But maybe I need my own sense of self-worth. Sure, I often ask him for reassurance—maybe this is just because I am proud of myself for learning how to ask.
So, asking is good. Asking yourself nicely is also good. Then giving yourself reassurance. :) 5 months ago
Perhaps it is kind to keep writing just to see what’s going on in there. Certainly ignoring the basis of my moods cannot be helpful. In a calm moment, I can probably see the fallacy of the underlying thoughts, or at least the misunderstanding in them, inappropriate to present circumstances.

43 things is way too many to work on!
I want discipline from others but feel very undisciplined (in time, in sweets, in impatience).
I thought getting stuff off my chest with daily writing would be good. Right now, it just frustrates me how “wrong” my feelings are. Maybe the point of doing it every day is that I eventually get tired of being judgmental with myself.
There’s judgment and there’s figuring out what to do now to get to where you want to go. I am confident I can do the latter without the former! 23 months ago
