Most mornings, I wake up with the feeling I’ve done something wrong. I call it The Guilt Machine. That whirring motor in my head that tells me I’m the bad guy. That I’m no good. That I’ve made a mess of everything I’ve ever done.
In the past, I numbed it with alcohol. Now I use less harmful methods like exercise, meditation, and writing.
