Something I noticed in the intersect between that Dharma talk and hyperawareness of my own mental states:
In a situation where I have anger / resentment due to social discord, and obsessive rumination about same, those two afflictions seem to fade at different rates. They're not fully coupled.
I'm not sure what to make of this, but it's interesting. Noting a similar decoupling between physical anxiety symptoms vs legit reasons to worry was a fundamental step in learning to cope with anxiety.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
