#00079: An old journal entry

Humility. Humbleness. Steadfastness.
Writing is a wonderful experience.
Stay in the middle.
Do you understand what I’m trying to say?
Cravings are normal. Believing that cravings are a sign of failure as an extreme. Acting out on your cravings is also an extreme.
Stay in the middle.
Self-criticism is normal. Too much of it, however, and you’ll end up losing hope in yourself. Too little, on the other hand, and you’ll end up losing yourself.
Anger. You are an angry person. For now, it doesn’t matter why you get angry so easily. Accept that it is what is and keep it under control.
Assuming you have any talents or strengths, you must utilize them for something beyond yourself. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been told over the years. What they see is but a reflection of an idea they have. Being told you’re smart or intelligent is simply a statement that mustn’t carry any value.
Complaining is useless. Fear is impractical. “Do good and throw it in the sea.”
Make the most out of the process.
Perfection does not exist. Perfection can only be. Perfection ought to be permanent.
I will never be permanent. Perfection ought to be independent of anything. I will always be dependent on something.
It’s not about avoiding mistakes. It’s not about not repeating the same mistakes. It’s about constantly learning.
Balance. Moderation.
Goodnight.
