Whenever I write on my blog, I like to listen to relaxing music. But I realized that actually, they’re all kinda sad (type “relaxing music” on Youtube) and I believe it affects my writing. So this morning, I asked Davidson:

For me, it doesn’t come naturally to think about myself first. By default, I’m thinking about what would please other people, although I know it should be the other way around. If I don’t pay enough attention, I lose myself in the process, and I feel frustrated and sad.

I used to travel running after monuments to see, museums to visit, must-eat restaurants, … My expectations were so high that once I got to experience that stuff, I wouldn’t even feel satisfied. I would feel like “meh”. And let’s be honest, most of what I was doing was just to brag about it back home.
