Diary #150 Rescuing

“How are you?”

“Fine” – [in fact not really, but I don’t want say because you will just dwell on it].

Why is it that when my friend says they are not great I try to rescue them, even if they might not want it? I believe it is because it triggers an unpleasant feeling inside me and I want it to go away. In fact, selfishly, I want to rescue myself.


So how can I be more discerning?  By becoming aware of the change in my emotional state and not being blindly taken for a ride. How can I do that? Through mindfulness and other techniques that cultivate greater self-awareness.
