> I think that when you are at the hard won truth phase, it doesn't feel particularly negative.

Thank you for this. This is a great test for me to apply when I get into these places. It does feel negative. My brain is saying, but oh, if only I could really really accept it, it would be a relief and stop hurting. But it still actually feels negative.

This is really valuable feedback for me. I think you've nailed it. It does feel like hopelessness. There was a bunch of martyrdom earlier, then it morphed a little into just a feeling of being... whipped or something. Like I'll keep on trying, but I know it's not going to work. I'll just keep on until I wear out. Gah, what's happened to me?
