Like a sink towering with dirty dishes, on my hard drive are hundreds of miscellaneous .mp4s, memes, and screenshots I’ve yet to clean up.
With however many miscellaneous habits and beliefs no longer serving me, am I any different than my cluttered hard drive? How much of me is made up of habits that no longer serve me?
Mistake: deriving your sense of Self from trash, scraps, habits and things way past their expiration date.
The resistance you feel towards cleaning up your psychological scraps stems from the fact that your scraps have been sitting unattended for so long that it’s almost impossible for you to distinguish between You and your scraps.
But you’re not your psychological scraps.
But you’re not your psychological gold, either.
