Being anxious is the human condition. There is no living state that it doesn’t exist. And the things we do to push away that anxiety actually make it worse. Invest 1/3rd in the inner you, 1/3rd in the outer you and 1/3rd on the other. Embrace the reality of getting out of your own crazy mind.
The concept of work-life balance creates its own suffering. The idea is that work is in opposition to life and you’re fucked because you can’t balance the two. But nobody can balance the two, it’s impossible, you’re always going to be thinking about something other than where you are. It’s all about the “other”, the time spent not worrying about your own shitty little problems.
