This happens to me when I'm watching movies or tv as well...
My last trigger
from a movie is what made me seek out this group.
I was watching a movie called, "Shame
," because it had one of my favorite actors, Michael Fassbender
, in it.
I remember slamming my laptop's screen closed and saying outloud, "well this is a stupid fucking movie and I'm wasting my time watching this garbage
Whenever I have a reaction like that - I always seek deeper to inquire the reasons behind it.
The thing about, "What did I know??
," and, "What should I have known??
," is often where we get trapped, isn't it?
We knew exactly what we should have known and we did exactly what we should have. That was all.
If we say we should have
or should have not
- we're applying the understanding that we have now
to ourselves, who didn't have our understanding, then
Maybe this will come across as cold considering we you, me, us, we are all here for but - I believe that the only things that shouldn't have happened did not
Or else, I wouldn't be the man I am, proudly, growing into.
Remember the wisdom of Tyler Durden when he said, "I say: may I never be complete. I say: may I never be content
." If we were content, if we were complete individuals - we would have not reason to seek out self improvement, self empowerment.
We would have had no reason to seek out eachother here and stand as great supports for each other.
Sometimes I think my responses grow rather long, I apologize - I am wordy.
Perhaps I meant to say, I know that feeling my friend - I feel it too.
