Hi Chugcoffee 🙂
It’s uncomfortable when you leave a meditation session with discomfort. Having a clear purpose about something right for you. As you might have hear others say before, it’s as simple as listening to your breathing or listening to sounds in your surrounding environment. Remember, it doesn’t have to be a deep serious session, it depends on your mood, feelings, thoughts you like to recognize within you. It’s a amazing feeling of the heart when you settle down your mind on it. Knowing from the beginning what you want to learn from your meditation sessions will help you in the long run.
I can relate to that dissociative feeling or vagueness from experiencing a repetitive thoughts. If you don’t respond well with certain thoughts then just remind yourself that it’s okay to let them go. More thoughts can blossom and when they do, get excited and eager to take good care of them and express them wholeheartedly because that’s the beauty in understanding and looking at the world differently with a pounding excited refreshed heart.
Walking in people’s shoes too can get you to realize sights, sounds,thoughts you never imagined before, those ups and downs.
I’m going to share with you this video that can reach your very special heart:
Blessings and Hope things begin to turn around for you,

I agree with Isabella and Moongal about making the decision. It’s up too you, but you can have fun with it! Talk with your family and friends when you need encouragement and in either way you decide, I think it is nice when you do make that decision instead of floundering around wondering what your going to do next. Of course the future is uncertain, but just remember to go with your gut and think about the life you like to have with the knowledge and experience that you have already. Good luck! 🙂February 14, 2015 at 10:09 pm #72771
I hope your work situation has improved, I understand that walking away helps for the drama to subside because the gossiper realizes that they don’t have a listen ear when they begin their negative talk towards you. Also, I agree with Katie it’s okay to change the topic if you don’t something to add or want to cheer the person up by telling them about your day and what you found interesting. I hope this works for you and keep strong 🙂February 14, 2015 at 9:51 pm #72766
Great guys, it’s always nice to hear friends staying positive and resilient in a tight situation. This forum is very nice to have the emotional support that you are looking for. Thanks for your replies and I hope both of you are doing well :))February 7, 2015 at 7:47 pm #72492
Just remember, whatever you decide about your long-term goals, the span of time is a choice you can make. Life happens and it can spoil a life you were satisfied with. From experience living without much application to one’s life, I know how it feels to be trapped by uncertainty to change. However, learning to trust your adaptabilities to those changes will give you things in life that you couldn’t have imagined. You can decide to teach for a few years and when you think you have given all your heart towards the purpose of teaching than I don’t see why it wouldn’t be necessary to move on. Although it’s frightening to seek or make changes in life, realistically the challenges are worth time and effort to make them; imagine how good it’s going to be to start now and not holding yourself down! Tracking or writing your progression down might help. Jerry Seinfeld writes one chain to mark what he wanted to achieve for the day so if he breaks the chain he will know. My heart goes out to you to find what you feel that lays closest to your heart 🙂 GOOD LUCK! 🙂February 1, 2015 at 9:26 pm #72227
I struggle similar to many with self-doubt a lot of the time and it’s nice when I do see how I am treating myself and how it’s not the most healthiest, it’s going to take strength of the moment to bust and detach from those negative connotations I have about myself. However, running helps me see differently about my life. I think most of it is involved with letting myself go into a place where I am measuring up with someone who I think has a better life than me. But as I grow to be appreciative and express gratitude for the only life I do have now. It does help to open my eyes to perceive someone as being honest and trustworthy so we can explore their understanding of their world together, it can be really fun.
Lastly, my main point that might help your friend is by not having a long term goals that would help her find a sense of self or purpose in life. It doesn’t have to be huge or have a measurable outcome. It’s purpose is to feel your unique oneness to the world. I know it’s been said before. However, small step though it’s a good thing your going for it’s great. I wish you with helping your friend feel the love she has!February 1, 2015 at 8:56 pm #72224
There’s so many emotions and experiences that comes with drawing that unreally beautiful and exotic. Drawing really helps to get me to appreciate the life for it’s beauty. However, when I first began drawing, I have a similar experience with you that drawing helped with aggression and coping with anxiety I had with people, but you bring up a good point to why do I draw and I think it would be interesting to learn how it spiraled. What I see is expressive lines and somewhat of a clear serene existence that I visually imagine as a surfer on a wave (I don’t know how to surf though, but it’s fun for me to imagine doing an fascinating sport like that) but I hope you feel this too the next time you draw, is feeling what the drawing does to your every breath.February 1, 2015 at 8:31 pm #72223
nature sounds is a great website that’s about mixing unique nature sounds including car purrs to thunder, sheep, and campfires. It’s a relaxing way to listen to nature itself when mediating or whatever you are doing. I hope you check it out because it’s enjoyable 🙂July 18, 2014 at 6:10 pm #61232
That is a very good point you made about looking back to the person who you once were with kindness and compassion. It’s difficult, because I don’t understand very much what it means to be compassionate. I am going to try practice love for the human being that makes the mistakes and is foolish. I have felt that I have grown much within the past two years, I’m not sure how. It might be that I am stronger. 🙂
Thanks about reminding that he was someone who I danced with!! 😀
I appreciate your response,

Get past, the past! Got it! 😀 I tend to be harder on myself then I need to be about my past mistakes. I believe and need to trust that I have found the acceptance and peace about the past that I know already.
Thank you for your reply,

Lissy & John,
Thanks for sharing your personal insights with me, I’ll keep in mind about the advice you have given. I think I worry too much about “making” or “creating” this friendships like you said since I’ve held many expectations for what I should be like or how they should be and “this is how it’s going to go”. I’ve felt the release to live without these expectations too! It’s motivating too, to stay focused on what of lifestyles I would like to live try. I haven’t been much of an explorer like I’ve always dreamt about because my pace is too slow! Yet I feel more ready to explore more since I’ve now started to discover what exploring truly means.
Thank you again! 🙂
