Doom BoxesNov 20, 2021
Give a thing a name. Share that name. Feel better.
A friend shared this post and I feel truly seen.
I have made these my whole life. And I have felt shitty about them my whole life.
- I should not create these in the first place.
- I should stop creating them.
Then I saw the post above.
- Yep, I do this.
- Other people this.
- They and I do this because of how our brains work.
- That makes sense.
- Now I have a name for them.
Update from the future: That post has truly helped me. Now I can say, "We cleaned things out and I started with 6 doom boxes, I emptied 4 and now I have 2 left. That is a WIN."
And THAT IS PROGRESS. Not shame and burden.
