Lots to think about here. (Surely some irony in that, given the nature of the thread.) I can't write long just now--want to follow up later. But this point here about overthinking really gets at something important. The tool you use to heal yourself is the tool that messes you, or the habitual use of that brain, getting out of the rut and using a new method that is not the method that got you in the rut in the first place. That's the ticket. So I've got some "thoughts" on that (following other kinds of inner wisdom other than intellect). It's all interesting, with paths that work out and others that don't. Keep going back to Heath Ledger's Joker "Why So Serious!" as a way to remind myself not to get too grim, to be light. Anyway, appreciate that comments. Look forward to following up. Helpful stuff!
