Right after a heavy dinner, the worst question to be asked is “what will you have for breakfast”
You feel shitty right now. Why did I eat so much. You don’t want to have anything for breakfast.
Come breakfast, you are hungry. And you gorge again. Perhaps feeling shitty again. You completely forgot how you were feeling last night.
Humans suck at remembering the extent of their emotions they felt in the past.
Whether happiness or pain
As a founder, the variance of emotions that hit you everyday is massive. Virtually impossible to remember all of them, let alone explain them.
I have gained a lot by recording these emotions. Everyday, I speak to myself. A voice memo. Answering 2 questions
What was the overwhelming emotion I felt yesterday?
Why did I feel that emotion?
And every now and then i go back to that day, just as one would to a diary. With the hope that I can still rationalize why I felt the way I did. Possibly learning how to be consistent with my emotions.
Turning emotions into a habit is hard.
Which is why it’s worth attempting to do it.
