Sometimes I have a hard time remembering that my value is not in my output. I have inherent value in being.

@hagridaaron
I want to believe this...but I have a really hard time believing this. What justification for believing this do you find helps assuage the cognitive dissonance? Like, I don't just have a hard time remembering, I have a hard time even trusting that it's TRUE.

@brandice Gosh, I'm completely with you - especially right now. I think for me breath is the one equalizer. Humans breathe. We all breathe. Without breath we cease to be, yet we do nothing to earn breath. that's not a fully formed though, just kind of what I'm feeling at the moment. Much love!

@brandice also just want to say that i'm so sorry you're experiencing this crap feeling.. And i'm so thankful for your vulnerability, it's nice not being alone.

@hagridaaron
Honestly, I'm not actually feeling that crappy ATM, b/c my "outputs" have been pretty good. But I'm sick of being so volatile and so judgy. I think breath as a great equalizer kinda works... But I feel like someone even said to me at some point "have you earned your air today?" and I do think about life that way sometimes. It's exhausting. Learning to just breathe.

@JessicaDayle I hope the weekend brings some better feels, thankful you're here :D

@hagridaaron Thank you, friend. I’m taking the GRE on Monday for grad school —so I’m hyper focused on my output right now. It’ll be fine. I’m fiiiiiine. 😥😬
