Swami comes clean
    #3959113 - 03/23/05 01:55 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I have been totally avoiding a MAJOR problem for years! My resistance was enormous and even thinking about dealing with this would give me severe headaches and I would get physically ill.

Finally, it was nearly impossible to put it off any longer. I stopped whining and ducking the issue and put the full force of my energy and focus into it - and guess what? It was no picnic, but was not the impossible Gordian Knot that I perceived it to be. The wasted years spent avoiding was a hundred or a thousand times more devastating and wasteful of time and energy than facing this hurdle.

You would have thunk that I would have learned this lesson by now, but am still attempting to become a mature adult.

Summation: tackle your biggest problems early and head-on and life will be a whole lot easier.

Note to gossip hounds: the actual issue is private and unimportant to this community, so DON'T ASK!

The proof is in the pudding.

So what was it?  :tongue:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Like redgreen hinted at, he saved 15% or more on car insurance by switching to Geico.

Now I don't know if this question is apropriate, but was that the reason you were so grumpy before?

yes, avoiding an issue only lets it turn into a monster. Turn around and confront it and you find it was only your shadow the whole time!

"even thinking about dealing with this would give me severe headaches and I would get physically ill."

I know you said you wouldn't tell what it was, but I really can't help but wonder what could be so severe that it could make you physically ill just from thinking about it.

Maybe it has more to do with the time frame... are we talking like, years and years of procrastinating on this?

So, you finally faced your UFO abduction issues. Either that or you were "saved".

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Perhaps he came clean to himself....    That is all that may really matter to him....  As he stated.... 
And he very well knows the nature of what he came clean with....  :heart:
