I am feeling pulled in two opposing directions. One is the compulsion to “work” on the difficult feelings that I am experiencing, the other the need to distract, support and nurture myself. I remember reading in a self-help book that the urge to “work” on problems is a mind trick which doesn’t actually lead to the resolution of the troubling issue. It would be more beneficial to me to go watch a kids movie, spend time with nature or spend time on a hobby.
