The thought occurred to me when I noticed I felt happy, and upon noticing it I felt nervous, like I was dropping my guard, making myself unready for the next disaster.
But how ready am I for disaster if I am always on the lookout for danger or disaster? It’s no way to live. I know this, but how do I change this?
I certainly want peace and happiness. Perhaps a preliminary step is awareness of my tendency to sabotage happiness.
My brain is not my friend today.

Have you ever heard the term “radical acceptance”? It might help with the idea of acknowledgement being a good step towards reordering your thought process. It has helped me a lot with my anxiety and Borderline Personality Disorder. Good luck!
Yes, I have heard of radical acceptance. I think I just needed to be reminded of it 🙂 So easy to forget …
SOOO easy to forget…even when you have a card with “Radical Acceptance” posted on the mirror right in front of you! LOL So much work, but we can do it!
Thank you for the reminder of radical acceptance!
=) And you are always welcome to remind me!
