Watching Out for Self Pity

    I haven’t written one of these blogs posts in ages.  However, since I got into big time self pity over the past few days, I figured it was worth writing something.  I am going to keep this brief because I do not like to make excuses.  What happened was that I got into a super negative rut over my professional life, still being single, and basically everything that is wrong with my life whether real or fancied.  It’s totally cool to feel anger, frustration and the like, but the key is to get your ass out of the house and do something if the thoughts really start to get bad.  When my thoughts really get out of control, things get blown out of proportion.  The mind can be our best friend or kick our asses depending on how we choose to think.  For me, my mind can get so out of control that I just have to stop what I’m doing and get out and do something.  If you don’t want to get out of the house, do it anyway. I got into a huge funk, and I made myself go to Princeton and visit friends and family.  I feel a lot better because I chose not to isolate.
