The Beast in our lives

The Beast in our lives

The Beast has many forms. The Doom-Anxiety Beast. The Regret Beast, or the Despair Beast.

The Beast has specific characteristics. It erodes your feeling of control and eats away at your ability to function when you least expect it. But it can never entirely take away that last bit of agency. This bit of agency can be used to control the Beast.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

The Beast can't stop you from standing up straight - physically. It may want you to lower your head and shoulders. But an upright posture symbolizes resilience in the face of suffering.

Physical exertion and cleaning is a superpower to overcome the Beast. A little of either can change the course of your day.

The Beast's presence makes you feel like you can't possibly live until it is gone.

When you feel the Beast is pulling at you, do something that will improve your situation even is small ways. Straighten a crooked picture or picking up the laundry off the floor.

It is a great relief to describe your experience to someone.
