Just take the "never" part with a grain of salt. I think sometimes it's probably actually ok to complain and sometimes it's ok to explain. Maybe what matters most is the nature of your audience.
Helpful. Always, always helpful. To everyone but myself. If people don't see me as helpful they will abuse me. Except the people that fall for that manipulation, I have noticed, take advantage. Talk about an endless negative feedback loop. I have been really taking myself to task on this one so I don't repeat it moving forward.I do weird things because I have to be special to prove that I didn't deserve the abuse.
Everyone or just some people? How do you know when you space out and when you don't? Do you notice that in the moment or afterwards? Do you practice healthy breathing when you are feeling well so you can use it as a tool for yourself when leaving your body?I space out when I am around other people.
