Remember, there are few things we do that can't wait until we are ready to do them. If you are doing something you feel you don't have to, stop doing it. If you feel guilty about not doing it, this is usually your emotional "stomach" growling its hunger. And it doesn't care what you feed it, as long as it's full. Which is to say, it attaches itself to things simply because of the emotional charge received, good or bad. Tell yourself why you aren't doing whatever it is, and don't do it until you can accept that it isn't getting done; until you realize it doesn't bother you anymore. At this point, you will have potentially freed yourself from the emotional attachment and should be able to carry on the activity without feeling emotionally depleted.
It's a bumpy road, but one that can be well worth traveling because the end result is getting back what you never needed to get rid of to begin with.
Exactly the way it feels sometimes. Thank you for the words of wisdom, I do appreciate and have listened to what you have to say. It is the way I already feel, trying to balance. Also attaching emotions to activities and then being able to fill that "emotional" hunger with said activities. When I am busy within my daily life I love all the time I feel I have to contemplate. I have a notebook, journal handy all the time, stuff comes out and there is no time frame for it. I have to write it down now, then go back when I have time and research or look up and continue my journey. It's making these adjustments that make me feel like I'm about to lull back into a sleepy autopilot where I just say "F* it all" I'm watching TV for 2 days! That would be easy, but I don't want easy or am I looking for it. That is not my path.
