Is there something you’ve been dreading, or incessantly complaining about?
Yeah, it’s hard not to, when you hate it so much.
But I’ve noticed over and over that when I’m actually in the midst of doing that awful thing, it’s not actually that bad…
The stressing over the doctor’s appointment, the badmouthing the friend, the complaining about the job, that’s all way worse than the thing itself.
Like Eckhart Tolle says, and I’ll paraphrase because I can’t remember the actual quote: Forget the past and the future whenever they are not necessary.
