Do you have days when you stick your hands under cold water, no problem? Are there days when you think “hell no! I’ll wait for the water to warm up”?
I noticed this about myself so I thought I’d do a bit of navel gazing. I found that on the ‘hell no!’ days I was feeling vulnerable for one reason or other. Maybe I was over tired, stressed or just wanted to kick someone’s ass, but couldn’t because that would be wrong. On those days, I felt the need to protect myself from any sudden shocks.On a good day, I could stick my hand under cold water and think nothing of it. I noticed I was usually feeling quite productive or determined. Ready to kick ass and take names. I call those my ‘suck it up’ days.
I am not a psychologist (are you?), I just find the human brain occasionally fascinating.
