A question I'm pondering is this: is it easier to be disappointed in people, or in ourselves? What hurts more: being let down by others, or letting ourselves down? Accountability: I hired a writing coach to hold me accountable towards my goal. It's working...a little bit...because I am starting to dislike being disappointed in myself, and I am tired of making excuses for myself, yet there is this comfort, this knowing that I am stuck with myself forever, and sometimes that allows me to be more graceful with myself than if I had to extend that grace to others.
I recently got a journal which comes with 300 writing prompts. I have been slacking in my journaling, even the one for me, so I figured that in order to get my butt going in the right direction, I would journal on these prompts daily. The first prompt is hard already, but the only way to do something is to actually do it. I will be going back and forth between here and my real journal.
