The majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
Sometimes our minds fail us and we forget that our minds are constantly operating in a loop of their own. This becomes particularly apparent when we are on autopilot. Because when we are not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them, they control us.
Like anything in life, your mind can fail you. It can be your friend or your enemy, and it can turn on you without warning. This is especially true when it comes to the most important things in life, the things that determine your level of success and happiness. For example, a person who suffers from depression can find themselves unable to make decisions because they think they are the most important person in the world to be successful.
This is why it is so important to have someone to talk to. And when your friend is the person who can empathize with you, it can be quite difficult to become depressed or to act on your own goals. It is a little like a person who has a broken leg being able to walk and then being told by a professional that it is too large to put back together.
So maybe the problem is that I have to rely on my friends more than anyone else for support. I know that sounds silly, but it is true. When I wasn’t living with my parents, I spent so much time in solo mode that I spent a lot of time alone. And if I was depressed, my friends would be my only companions. When friends were around, I could not feel depressed because I could talk to them.
For a lot of parents, especially those who are young and have young children, I’m sure that being able to talk to friends is a very important way of bonding with them, especially in a time of stress. Being able to vent to a friend when you feel that the world is against you is a form of self-care.
So, when you’re depressed, you don’t feel like a depressed person. Instead, your depression is a feeling that you have, but you don’t have. The feeling of being alone is the feeling of being a depressed person. The feeling of being alone is the feeling that you’ve been beaten. The feeling of being alone is the feeling of being a person you are not capable of helping.
Of course, this is all a bit heavy for my standards because I am a self-centered ass, but I think it’s worth noting. We need to remember that, regardless of the type of depression you suffer, being able to vent to an old acquaintance when you feel like you’re dying is a big part of self-care.
A friend of mine recently found out he had a stroke. While that sounds unpleasant and painful, I think its a good reminder about how important it is to be able to communicate with and support others when they are weak. It sounds like he is in a great deal of pain and despair, but there is also the hope and strength of knowing that other people are there to help him.
I don’t have a lot of news to share, but I did find a few interesting ones, including this morning’s obit. Today, I learned that David F. Mitchell is one of the most famous and influential authors in the world. He’s also one of my favorite authors. You may have seen him in the movies, but you may not have read his books.
