I recently did a meditation about observing your thoughts, imagining you were sat by a river and just watching each thought pass through.

I’ve been working hard at this, because it’s definitely something that I think will benefit me.

But my self critic has been quite strong and not feeling comfortable with this new passive form of dealing with thoughts. I keep doubting whether its working, whether I’m doing enough. I seem to have got it into my head that recovery means constantly being proactive in dealing with my worries.

maybe part of recovery is being more laid back, not always something to combat anxiety but rather seeing what needs to be done in the moment if the time comes.
