I took it a bit slower today. It's a Friday, after all. I started the morning with a chill yoga flow session before starting anything else.
I want to have more peaceful days like these where I don't coerce myself into doing anything, even if it's something 'productive' or becoming a better person. I recently stumble upon 'unlearning coercion', coined by visa. Forcing yourself to do better isn't the best way at doing something. Maybe it is knowing what your limits are. But we tend to push ourselves past our limits to the point of burning out. Is it worth achieving our goals? Maybe. But I don't want that. I want to have more boundaries for myself while still within the reach of my goals. I'm still unlearning self-coercion. It may take years, but we're in it for the long run.
