Chris tried very hard to find wellbeing.  He was hurting and believed that he might always hurt unless he could somehow dig himself out of this hole he was in. His mind clung to beliefs as if they were protective, refusing to budge.  Until that changed. At some point, Chris saw that no amount of

EP173: Choice and Regret

What if the concepts we call ‘choice’ and ‘regret’ have nothing to do with what actually happens in life?

They’ll say things like:  “I can’t handle this”. “I don’t know how I’ll make it through.” “I’m lost. I don’t know what to do next.” “I’m barely keeping my head above water.”. But here’s the

The narrator exaggerates. It can be so dramatic. You’re not just feeling a little grumble in your stomach, you’re about to die of hunger.  You’re not just coming up on a busy week, you don’t know how you’ll handle it all–it’s going to be horrible! These are examples of how a mind loves to add
