My Aunt Betty has been asking me to journal my feelings so as to face whatever it is I’m running from. Below is an email she wrote me.
Betty: Perhaps you are in a “catch 22.” If that stuff on “why you can’t have the freedom to take a nap” is truly needing to be faced, you would probably help this problem by doing the work I asked for. The more you run from your shadow, the stronger it becomes. Truth is golden and ultimate peace. But the work cannot be skipped. Sooner or later it will have to come up as you need your sleep.
