Witholding Self Acknowledgement is a sickness cured by focus
The root cause of emotion and suffering may be a story of tough times that you tell yourself. It is verified, in part, by dismissing what works in life, and focusing only on what feels bad. This may be your belief, that feeling good is the reward that you give yourself after solving all of your problems. Of couse focusing on what doesn't work is a self fulfilling feedback loop. It ensures that you keep feeling bad.
Are any of us effective operating from that felt sense?
If you want to take a step to break that loop, comment below on what worked today. Thanks
