Gratitude 21 Slaying Dragons

Or at least shrinking them to adorable little lizards.

We all hold on to old beliefs, some of which are so old, and so pre-rational that they take on lives of their own inside our minds. Many of them are adaptive, yes? They help us protect ourselves or compensate or some such prior to having real adult skills.

One of mine is being observed, looked at, talked to and I’m in the process of doing that shrinking/letting go/waving goodbye to etc one that has been causing more harm than good lately (for a good long time).

I’m thankful I get to do that.

  1. In physics, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on the phenomenon being observed. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. A commonplace example is checking the pressure in an automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure. This effect can be observed in many domains of physics.
