Whilst I have the tendency to judge things as pleasant or unpleasant, good or bad, I find that so often the flavours of real life tend to be more complex and often contrasting.
Take a small thing, such as starting a podcast for example: I am excited to be sharing what I love and at the same time apprehensive about becoming visible and being judged. Or it could be a big thing, like a relationship: wanting affection on one hand and at the same time not wanting it for fear of rejection.
So much in life tastes sweet and sour.
And so often the sour comes from fear.
And so often behind the fear lies self-protection.
Now I don’t have any advice or solutions to give - I just find it interesting.
