Reply To: Removing Happiness…


    It sounds like you are procrastinating, which is a result of being afraid to do something and doing everything in your power to avoid it. However, I would not recommend inflicting damage on your happiness, since happiness is the goal! (Mind you, I've considered this myself, but you might want a second opinion.)

    What you might do instead is look at your reasons for not doing XYZ and blissing out instead. You said something about failures–that's a great starting point. You probably expect X endeavor to fail and/or are terribly afraid of how unpleasant failure would be. If you can take out fears like that, you can probably start making progress again.
