Thanks for the recommendation!
I don't think I need to justify that I bought that book. But when I sat up late yesterday, really overtired, I came wondering what I really was trying to accomplish, fooling myself about the need to sleep.
The book makes me rethink about disappointments in people. One instance when I risked speaking up about some outrageous behavior, and the person in question didn't even own up to it, as if it didn't exist. I could hardly believe it, but the others did.
There's a lot of insight into the dynamics of denial here, and also why it works to "fake it till you make it", when attempting life change. The book makes it understandable that support is necessary when changing.
Do I use the book as a proof about things I know? I guess it's rather enlightening about things that I've found puzzling.
But again, the need for sleep. Do I need to justify that I need to go to bed? It seems a bit childish. I didn't realize that sleeping felt good until I was at least ten. Sleeping was just something you were told to do. Am I still in the mood thinking that there's so much going on that sleep is just a waste of time?
I know it isn't.
And that's the end for tonight. Or is it? Do I HAVE to finish that chapter? Yes, I must, - NO, it makes no sense reading when tired, I just forget what I've read... and on and on.
(inspired by "Mistakes were made") It's a good read.
