Getting a Grip on Reality

I’m in my head a lot

\’\’I can be pretty nasty to Me. I have some pretty insane expectations of Me and I rip myself apart when I feel I don’t perform to the standards I set.

A shift in perspective does Me good

My bubble needs to be burst. Frequently and often. I need to get outside my head and my little world and the silly little things I tell my Self.

I need to experience other people’s reality

It’s crucial for Me to interact with the greater world, the unfamiliar world, and move outside my routine. Without a break from the usual, I find it difficult to maintain perspective in my own life and the expectations I set for myself.

A getaway from the everyday

Sometimes I need nothing more than a swift slap in the face with a good dose of not-my-reality. For empathizing with other people’s joys and trials helps me to understand and accept my own.
