Do You Practice The Introspection?

#1

I learnt the meaning of introspection perhaps ten years ago when I was taking my medicine and therapy. I mean, since I was a child I didn´t know what was the introspection so I didn´t know to identify my emotions and feelings, my mind was a chaos. Today, my mind has improved but I still have problems for identifing my feelings.
Have you had the same experience like me? What is your experience?

I’ve always been an introspective person. Even as a child. But I was kind of a loner, so I had a lot of time to myself to think about my feelings.

I still do that now. I find that it helps me when I’m feeling paranoid or anxious. Through introspection, I’m usually able to find the root of the anxiety or paranoia. And often, I find that the root lies in the past.

Great topic!

Blessings,

Anthony

I don’t think I had too much introspection until I got stable. I was in two modes as a kid. I was in your face, manic hyper or freaked out rage. That was it. That was all I could really function on. As I grew up I know I “created” moods through drugs and alcohol. Which because of my lack of range is most likely why I went for drugs.

My kid sis has been saying that a few years ago my “emotional crayon box” only had black, white and the three primary colors. But these last two years I’ve ended up with the box of 64. So I’m starting to slow down and get used to the flavor of some of these new emotions or states of being. It’s definitely different.
