Helpless. I want to help and I just can't really.

A profound appreciation for every problem, obstacle, and pain that confronts me. I know these are the opportunities that help me transform into grace.

Meh. Headache, guilt, sadness, regret, annoyed.

Depression. At least it's better than feeling nothing. I've felt nothing. Yeah, I'd rather feel something, even if it's immense pain. Nothing is frightening. It's not human.
What a nice song.

wishing I were a T type.
Often I make decisions at work and later regret them. My judgement needs work.

You have a choice!
A thought just occured to me, after all the thinking and typing about feelings and 'hurt'. There doesn't need to be hurt. The hurt itself is conjured up by your mind, and is but an illusion. The same goes for a crapload of negative emotions. They don't need to be there.
I knew someone once who I felt made life difficult for herself. She placed rules on herself, on the world. A lot of things were 'unacceptable'. At that time I always wondered why she was doing it to herself. Why can't she just let it go and be happy?
I just realized that maybe we all are doing the same thing to ourselves. We are placing a lot of expectations on how things are supposed to be, including how we are supposed to be. Our perception is so tied up in all the made-up conditions that we set for ourselves unconsciously. "I am this way so I cannot do this", "I am hurt because someone did something that people who care about each other ought not to do". It is all what I feel, what I need, what I think, what I believe. It's all 'me', and it's all false.
Why should I care what people think? Ultimately it doesn't really matter. What they think is of little consequence to me, if I don't grab hold of it as if it is true. People can hate. I don't need to feel the hate. When I do things, I don't need to worry about what people will think. I can do things because I want to. If I make someone happy, it's because I want to, not because I should, not because I feel obligated to do it by a moral imperative, not because it will make me feel good about myself, because the feeling good is also made up by my mind.
Through this, I discovered freedom. This freedom is a little unsettling at first, like I am released from a confined cabin into a vast field. But I've never felt lighter.
