Re: I'm a sponge and at my saturation point

I have my rational thoughts for this. IN fact, I have about 30 rational thoughts which I have to keep saying and thinking over and over again.

The rational thoughts for this problem are:

"excessive worrying helps no one"

"Overidentifying with others' pain doesn't help anyone"

"I've got enough suffering in my own life without taking on others' suffering."

"Problems and pain are life."

All makes sense. ANd I say these over and over again and to some degree this new way of thinking seems to be working. But I find that when I actually CATCH myself not worrying about others like I think I SHOULD (a big no no in Bean's vocab) then I become very unsettled and almost paniced.

Rational thinking is so much freaking work!!
