Sadness

By Dias · Jan 24, 2019 · ·
  1. After my initial enthusiasm, yesterday I started feeling sad; sad to see what I perceived to be my own limitations: the way I feel disconnected with the people, even though I like them, how I get confused and my brain does not work, my ears don't listen and my mouth is useful only for eating not for talking; sad to see that even though I do not want attention it comes a point where I feel lonely; sad about the fact that even though I have a job I still feel useless most of the time;
    The problem I think is again the comparisons with those around me: I have to change the way I see myself and others: they also have their own struggles wich I know nothing about...
    I have to find my place because I believe God does not makes mistakes, so I am perfect just the way I am, but I need to find my strengths and stop thinking about my weaknesses which are actually just an interpretation and not reality.

    I could counter all the limitations that you say that you have:your disconnection with people is just you noticing your differences,but not fully accepting them yet.It's not confusion that you have ,it's overload at times,and i bet you usually go on to resolve dilemmas in your thoughts in your time.
    i don't mean to be presumptuous,but the feelings that you wrote about are feelings i have often shared,but have started to lose with self awareness and acceptance. You have a great confidence to go out to India travelling.
