Tunnel #17 Being Hard on yourself again?
Everybody probably does it at some time. But the artistic, feeling amongst us… we’re the worst for descending into a self judging morass. It gets worse, and worse.
Me, very bad.
Me, very-very-very bad.
Like the image of the greenhouse (tunnel # 11), the shutters of the soul go up. Light can’t get in any more. Input dies. That tiny little cubicle of darkness, that cold cell of self destructive introspective judgmentalism, becomes the world. Becomes everything. What looms large in that tiny cell, IS now the world. It IS Reality. Everything looms large. Things get ugly, fast.
Here’s a thought that maybe addresses that:
I have a feeling this area is very overlooked by seriously depressed people. Their sense of self worth is biased.
Upbringing, culture, peer pressure, life experiences… it all goes into it.
