Yesterday afternoon after work, I spent some time watching drama with my mom and laughed at a few lines the leading actor was sharing with his wife. He told his wife: Why don't we go out have picnic like the old days? I am tired of the routine - wake up, work, meetings, meals, headache, sleep. I need a break from this routine or I will burn out. His few lines have awoken me.
I am very tired of my current routine. I need to find new activities to re-energies my life. Currently, every sector of my life is suffocating me especially my friends. I have many friends who only turn to me when they need help or who like to spread toxic thoughts so I could appear vulnerable in front of them.
Groundhog Day or Groundhog's Day is a traditional festival celebrated in the United States and Canada on 2nd February. In traditional weather lore, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow because the weather is bright and clear, it will be frightened and run back into its hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks.
The story of groundhog has taught me an important psychology lesson: If I refuse to come out of the burrow, dark thoughts will persist. Now, my important task is how to get rid of the "many winters"?
