Hi all! Happy Monday!
I have an issue with shortsightedness in all senses of the word. I can’t see a foot past my own nose and I can’t see past my current problems. When I encounter a problem I get so obsessed over it that I can’t see a solution beyond the one solution. I begin to shape my thoughts and emotions and behavior around it. The problem consumes me and more often than not things start spiral out of control because I can’t see past the problem. I forget that there’s a reality outside of the problem and without it life continues. The problem becomes my reality. I think it may come from my fear of trusting too far ahead; a fear of the future. The problem is easier to trust and deal with. It’s present and tangible. The future is far too wobbly and unstable.
I’m working on it. The bigger problem.
