homework question #6

List some “negative” circumstances in from your life.

This particular question is the hardest one for me, but the most illuminating. I’ve been in scholars since January, and it’s hard for me to write a “negative” circumstance. Those two words no longer go together in my brain. I have like three circumstances that I still judge as negative, and I wrote all those the first day. Since we’re not supposed to repeat, I’m having a hard time coming up with more every day. But I’m still doing the exercise, writing down things that I would have previously judged as negative. And with each one, my brain is telling me, “not a fact, not a fact, not a fact.” You’ve trained me well to separate thoughts from circumstances, and I’ve grateful for it.
Thank you, Brooke.
