A couple years ago, Shyrwyn decided to write haikus. She would write and publish one haiku a day.
It’s been years that I’ve been noticing that my emotions were not matching my thoughts. Anxiety, specifically, was killing me. I was anxious all the time, even when I had nothing to worry about, and I was experiencing an unbeliable intolerance to interruptions that was depleting my energy every single day.
This is a work in progress post that I’m writing for myself when I need it in the future.
Back in 2010 I was working as a level 2 infrastructure analyst at a tech company in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As part of my responsibilities, I had to interact constantly with different software developers, so it was common for me to have lunch with them.
I’ve learned the difference between easy and exhausting when I became a father.
But there’s nothing I need.
Sometimes I wonder what would I have done different if I had been taught as a kid that becoming good at something is a matter of doing it repeatedly for a long period of time.
One day I’ve been struck with this idea, that I haven’t shared with anyone because I thought maybe I was just being dramatic, under the influence of the frustration of the moment.
Actually, the reality is different. Enough studies confirm that we are attracted by people who share similarities with us (more details here: Relationships: opposites do not attract, scientists prove).
If you have a better option, there’s no reason to complain. If you don’t have a better option, it makes no sense to complain.
