How much money is enough to help me have a good life without getting to the point where I am always concerned with money? What does a fulfilling career even mean? Does that mean I work for a non-profit? Do I open my own business? What is fulfillment. Why do I want to travel? Is it to show pictures to everyone else to show how cool I am? Or is it for my own experience.

For years I had disconnected myself from my own needs. I had found that ignoring them was a survival strategy, experience had taught me that I was safer that way. This wasn’t a sustainable approach. I’d become so good at hiding and ignoring my needs that I spent years going through life numb to the good experiences I should have been having. All my actions were routed in expectations and obligations. When that got too much for me I turned to food, drink and drugs to fuel actions. It was ok that I needed to spend the day in bed, it was a hangover rather than depression caused by my unhealed trauma. It’s fine that I drank before I went out, that was me being savvy with money as I wouldn’t spend so much at the club. My binge eating was tied to the days when I was suffering malnutrition from before my adoption (I don’t recall that, I think I may have made it up. I recall walking to collect water with a container on my head as part of my chores, but never hunger…) and the list of justified negative behaviour that sustained the numbing of my emotions is endless. This was never sustainable, and that’s a good thing.

This kind of lifestyle never really died out for me until my first year in college. In my head, I still thought that to be attractive to girls, you had to have a lot of money and spoil them. I thought that in order to be academically successful, you needed the best computer, the most expensive education. My parents hammered over and over again into my brain that in order to become successful, you had to be rich. It was all about the money.https://perfectideals.wordpress.com/2017/02/11/incipience

Just take a different approach here to maintain the relationship – for example: We love each other so deeply, there is no doubt – no trust issues and I still wait for his message or call, I still want him to see my all status and respond BUT now by replacing my thought process I just want THIS to happen and I stopped expecting this. Expectation means – other person has to do this else it will hurt us. And Want is mine own – other person is not responsible for this. The time we realize that its not the other person who is hurting us, its us/our feelings which is the cause of all this. Our mind became more relaxed and then we start appreciating whatever little or big things/gestures other person is doing/showing for us. We start value them more than before. Now, its only love, love and only love…https://dilkigehrayionse.wordpress.com/2021/06/09/expectations

We may never agree on what is art, what isn’t art, or why it matters. But as artists, I think we can definitely agree that art is meaningful to us. We all need art in our life. Sometimes we may need to step away for one reason or another, but we’ll always come back to art.https://artistcoveries.wordpress.com/2021/06/02/hiatus
