It’s a subject that has bubbled to the surface for me lately, but I don’t want to think about it. It’s like going on a diet, only, instead of being an authoritarian asshole with what you eat and how much you eat, you have to be an authoritarian asshole with what you do and how much time you spend doing it.
Nobody likes that asshole.
I want to just gloss over it and not really think about it; thus the title of this article. It isn’t that I’m indifferent, it’s that I’m scared of what my life will look like when I stop escaping. I’m scared of how it will feel when I don’t buffer anymore?
I’m thinking the long-term reward will outweigh the short-term relief. What do you think? Do you buffer too, and in what ways?
