Outward vs Inward

It is hard. It is hard to sit with the pain, to sit with all the feelings.

In a world where we are so easy to distract ourselves from self, we must choose the discomfort.

We must be ok with sitting in the shit, feeling all of it. Just as I am writing down these words, I rather ignore my feels by scrolling my phone, or being distracted in some other unhelpful way such as drinking too much wine or watching a show that is only there to entertain me.

We live through others lives on a screen while our bodies just sits still consuming.

Is that the idea? To stop consuming all the time. Stop looking outward and start looking inward. Even if it is painful. We are build to do hard things and we can do hard things.
