My friend Mike, in a comment, suggested that there was a conflict between the two posts. His words, exactly:
In reading these two entries I see two things: 1) you describing a place in your mind that brings you peace, relaxation and a feeling of freedom that you seem to have the ability to return to (thumbs up) and 2) you becoming stumped and frustrated when trying to associate that place with other people (thumbs down). In your first entry you said it didn’t matter if anyone else was in the car but in the second you worried that no one would want to come along for the drive.
I think Mike’s right, and I’m not really surprised about the existing conflict.
One thing I know about
people myself is that we I oftentimes want what we I shouldn’t. Even more often, we I don’t know what we I want. I know a lot of people for whom this is a constant conflict.
With me, it’s not always a situation of not knowing as much as it is a situation of changing my mind: there are days that I know exactly what I want to do, where I want to go, and I take aim at it. Other days I’m less focused, and more vague. About everything.
Question: When you have a lot of things you can do, and a lot of directions you can go in, how do you decide?
(NB: I’m back-posting this weekend’s posts because I thought I scheduled them, but it turns out I hadn’t.)
This is the fifteenth post in my #30posts challenge. Don’t know what that is? Read this.
