The eyes of others

The eyes of othersForeBrain Porn Although it is getting better, I often find that my chest, shoulders and core tense up as I am walking around where I live. I never knew what it was due to, but now I know that it has to do with my thinking. When I was a kid, I […]

Reacting to failure

Reacting to failureForeBrain Porn Last night I wrote an exam that I didn’t study for, and as I wrote it I knew that I didn’t know what I was doing. I knew that I had to study, I had a whole long weekend to do so, and sometimes, I just can’t bring myself to do […]

Motivational Videos VS. Ego

Motivational Videos VS. EgoForeBrain Porn It’s a long weekend. I’ve hung out with friends, spent time alone, exercised a little, and have made no progress in any of the work or studying that I was hoping to accomplish. I struggle with this kind of self-defeating talk often. I am not sure what to do about […]

Bad hair day

Bad hair dayForeBrain Porn Apparently Bad hair days aren’t just for girls… My hairs been growing long, and the gel I use isn’t made for this kind of length or wind speed… It’s bugging me, and all I can do is think that people are judging me for the way my hair looks, but in […]

Trusting your gut

Trusting your gutForeBrain Porn Trusting one’s own gut is such a hard thing to do. Especially after years of substance abuse.

2 spaghettis & relationships

2 spaghettis & relationships ForeBrain Porn I heard a great analogy a few days ago and I thought it would be worth sharing with you. I am sure a lot of you will be able to relate to it from either perspective. Have you ever been in a relationship, either it be romantic or platonic? The […]

Everyday is different

Everyday is differentForeBrain Porn Although that may seem like an evident statement, it was made all the more clear to me this past weekend. Since I have been working my recovery seriously and getting involved with other addicts, my “normy” friends, and new people my social agenda perpetually fills up. It gets to a point […]

I am racist

I am racistForeBrain Porn As much as it disheartens me to admit it, I am racist. Recently in my hometown, there has been a case of police brutality that resulted in the death of a Somali man. He died of the injuries that he incurred while being arrested by the officers.** Consequently, or coincidently, I […]

Quest for productivity

Quest for productivityForeBrain Porn An evening with a friend with no plans. Plenty to do outside of this “bubble” situation, but nothing else to do in the present moment, but chat, drink tea, and live through moments of silence. This kind of situation would have driven me up the wall a few months ago, and […]
