I can't relax

Reply Tue 5 Mar, 2013 05:52 pm
Bit of a brain vomit, apologies:

Does anyone else ever feel like they can never relax ? I'm finding I can never relax about my career, it's basically the only thing I think about: learning more, doing more, not being as successful as I want to be yet. I can't enjoy anything without it having a 'purpose' to it, and no matter how much I do I always feel like I could have done a ton load more. I've done quite a lot in comparison to some of my friends, but I never give myself a break or let it feel like 'enough'. I see friends a couple of times a week, but apart from that work is all I do. Is anyone else the same? I can't decide if the solution is to work even harder until I get something, or to find a way of not being so fixated on it. Maybe summer will help.

@The Pentacle Queen,

Hey PQ,

Not me. I'm pretty relaxed all the time.

Once you figure out that all the BS pressure you place on yourself really is self-generated, it all just sort of drops away.

Why are you working so hard all the time? Is there a goal you are trying to reach, or what?

@The Pentacle Queen,
I'm your direct opposite, but then I'm multiples of your age. But I think behaviors do tend to stick. I did spend years in near constant agitation for arguably good reasons a long time ago but even back then I had a zoning out to looking around mode for the spaces I was in, and some procrastination behavior.

Clearly you are bright and driven.

Of course I think you should relax already - but then I would.

I'll speak up for zoning out and just being.

Sometimes I think fear is a driver of frenetic activity. But.. sometimes that has good results.
