Creepy

Creepy as in creeping along, frustrating in that progress is so slow. Angry and sad describe my feelings. I actually feel guilty about not knowing how to fix these feelings yet, as though I "should" know.  Beyond that, I feel hope. Perhaps the attachment to happiness "when this is over", the destination, is obscuring the enjoyment, and purpose, of the "trip". In that case, things must be going along perfectly, and it's just my opinion that they aren't. That's just GREAT...the classic conflict, for grieving, between reality and expectations. Somehow, somewhere, there's some goodness in all this for me.

Do they need to be fixed? Or can you just sit with them for a while.

It has been said... happiness is not in getting everything you want, but being happy with that which you have.

In focusing on \"a time,\" \"an event.,\" \"a person,\" \"a place,\" or a \"Thing,\"
We take ourselves not only out of the present, but out of reality.

I believe your feelings are rooted in faulty thinking and misconceptions.

Occasionally it is faulty thinking. I don\'t have to fix it immediately, though. I\'ll just be happy with where I am now and continue to seek ways to be happier.

Acknowledging I am feeling frustrated is just a way to practice being aware of my present feelings and what I amy want to change from automatic, to attention. No big deal.

Plus it\'s all about unrooting the problem and knowing it\'s okay to fail as long as you keep learning to do better.

you crack me up! Accepting the way you feel is part of the problem.....
validation, acknowledgment and acceptance are all different things.

there isn\'t a problem - except you can\'t get comfortable with yourself.

What you should be doing is finding reasons to NOT accept your feelings
as valid...... Just my take, but you are doing too much of saying it is OKAY.(validation and acceptance)..
rather than, I don\'t have to feel this way.... (acknowledge and change)
