As I piece together some of my life, the depression and anxiety push back. I found myself unable to paint, something that helped me through the challenges. I started small, got myself on track and was able to paint once more. Then, the writing and journaling fell off. Lately, I sit down to write something and only get a paragraph in before stepping away.
There's no magic pill. It's unrealistic to think everything would work concurrently, Yet, here I am, frustrated.
@sikkdays Like meditating, I think it's the perpetual coming back to center, despite how frustrating it might be to keep wandering away, that is ultimately the discipline.
It's also tough times right now. Gotta try and be gentle with ourselves.
