Re: Cause and effect

Do you feel that being on guard for abuse is necessary in order to handle it ok? Since you feel competent in such situations is it possible to tell yourself and subconscious that you can deal with it even if not "on guard" already? Or do you worry that if blindsided you won't be able to handle such situations?

Abstaining for few weeks from any paranoia inducing substances might at least reduce the totality of the abuse feeling. It might be that not everyone is involved.

I think that is exactly the direction that makes sense. Being " on guard " happens with me completely automatically, where dropping the guards and trusting requires conscious effort.

Re: Cause and effect

Have a meeting in an hour. Like always have yet to finish last three slides. Instead of finishing them am watching dance videos and posting here. And somehow totally relaxed.

RE: Always being ready for an attack/abuse.

1. You're so self-aware to realize this and to question whether it's more good or bad for you.

2. I'm a believer that you create your own reality and what you focus on is what comes to you. Of course you should always be prepared, but don't always expect the worst from people. Besides, why have all that anxiety or worry for something that may never happen?

Re: Cause and effect

I completely agree. And also with the idea of creation of reality.

Re: Cause and effect

Looks like I will be spending my birthday in Greece. Got invited by a friend, who lives in Germany but is Greek and has there a house. I like the idea. It hits somehow sweet spot for doing something different but not trying too hard to make it special.
Some problems resolve themself.

Re: Cause and effect

Very close to yours. 18 August.

I always struggled in my grown-up life with it. Sometimes it was good. But every time I tried to make something like a party it was catastrophic. I like the idea to be in some greek village, completely relaxed, most of the day just on the beach, some good greek food. Major theme: "zero pressure, completely relaxed".

Re: Cause and effect

I am pissed off and I totally should be. I am on the overfull German train with crappy internet. So no poker and no sleep for me. Bored and tired. May be I can do some yoga. Luckily I am not in a skirt. Everyone around is also pissed off for the same reason.

Re: Cause and effect

I was on a german train when the german police came into our cabin. Tucked our passports into his shirt pocket and told us to unpack all our ****. After they were satisified they couldnt bust us for **** they walked off. They were almost out of the train station when I realized they still had our passports. I chased these ****ers down and gave em the wtf and got the **** out of germany.

I cant remember the last time I celebrated my birthday.
