Day 7 — Two of Vessels; Union [Reversed]
It warns of self-centered, unloving, hurtful and sadistic emotions
Emotions are so complex and I clearly haven’t figured it out. I often think my emotional intelligence is low. I have a few emotions I get and use and a bunch of them that I struggle with or don’t have in my arsenal. I have them in subtle measures. I don’t even know if that makes sense. I’m totally free styling here as I got an incredibly annoying email and it prompted me to write.
Don’t be Self-centered. But do take care of yourself and love yourself and know yourself. But don’t be exclusively about you. Everything isn’t about you. Reminder to self.
Don’t be Unloving. Just love people and things. Love really conquers all. Love everything. Being unloving is crappy.
Don’t be Hurtful. I had a great quote for this and now I can’t remember it. I think it was Tennessee Williams. I read it in Olivia Laing’s “Trip to Echo Springs”. It basically said don’t be hurtful. It’s good advice.
Definitely don’t be Sadistic. Why would you want to do that?
Good warning today. Thanks universe.
P.s. Today’s entry feels not good. I don’t like the quality. But I’m trying to be consistent.
