A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Full or Empty?

This is a post that I’ve been thinking about since last year, but never felt the timing was right. Now, I don’t care, too much, if the timing is right or not. The cliché about is “your glass half full or half empty, sometimes gets on my nerves. Why? Sometimes, in life we analyze or think about things too much, when what is called for is action. I stay in the middle thinking about it which prevents me from actually making a decision and acting on it.

Now, I know that it is human nature to analyze or think unless you are impulsive. (that is a different issue) But, sometimes, we just need to do something anyway. At least, this is true in my life especially when I don’t want to take responsibility for what I decide. I look at it from all directions without ever taking any action.

Now, don't just stare at your coffee, drink it!!!

Share something that you need to or have done that required or requires action?

I get that way about food... can't decide what to eat or even if I should eat or not. It's definitely a sign that I'm overwhelmed. Now I'm going to go get my coffee ma'am. ;)
