I think it would be really insightful to see which challenges/frustrations people are facing here.

Mine is staying consistent with my morning routine. What about you?

Integrating everything I learn. It’s so easy to have all the nice feelings and exist purely in the moment when things are going well. But when external reality decides it’s time to fuck you 5 different ways all at the same time that’s where the real test is.

Emotional turbulence. When I know what needs to be done, my mind flips between excitement + drive, and fear. When fearing, it'll generate a million excuses not to do said thing

One word.

FEAR

I would give absolutely anything to have my amygdala removed or permanently deactivated. I am far beyond sick and tired of being crippled by False Evidence Appearing Real.

I suppose you can look at any issue through multiple frames.  

But the dominant frames I've used are probably...

  • Mental health/trauma leading to emotional turmoil, leading to not feeling settled and secure in a place long-term (including forming long-term relationships), leading to not developing mastery in stuff and getting solid momentum towards building a solid life.

Having a ton of perceptual blind spots and therefore not being aware if I am being dishonest with myself.
