Instead of telling myself things are "fine the way they are" maybe I should actually consider the ideas that excite me.
Yes, I want to be involved in education in some form.
Yes, I'd love to become a CSI.
Yes, I want to live in the woods.
I always talk myself out of things like that because I try to exercise impulse control. I mean, when I ignore my impulses I tend to do things like move 3000 miles away without finishing my extended treatment plan.
But what if these aren't just impulses. What if I'm actually telling myself what would make me happy, but I ignore it and keep trudging along on the same path because "that's what you're supposed to do."
"Supposed to do"
