the practice of negative framing
existential i would rather be depersonalized than be sexually abusive
even though i fear treadmill of reality. at least i am not a paraplegic.
happiness is an existential problem. there are so many things that could go wrong, so many things that could break apart easier than to mend them. what does it mean to be happy.
Remind yourself that you aren’t blind, you don’t have chronic wheezing or acid reflux or that uncomfortable sensation of fullness across your chest. There are many things that are “right” with you.
now this is different than looking at some poor soul in a wheelchair and suddenly feeling better for yourself since you can walk. it's more so comparing yourself to yourself- what could have or be wrong with you but isn't.
i am not a murderer..this calms me. life is actually okay
