Death by 1000 Papercuts
As the metaphor goes: Cut once, no problem. Cut 1000 times, even if we heal one wound, the other 999 will take us down.
Wellbeing is similar - our minds, bodies, values, goals, habits, connections with others, and desires, all contribute powerfully to our wellbeing. If we're myopic about one, the others will silently hinder us. They work together like musicians in a orchestra. If the music doesn't feel right - assume the view of the conductor - sense across the entire landscape that is your life, and understand where to tune.
How Do You Suffer?
HOW do you suffer? Please, become very interested in this question. If your life is a castle of a thousand rooms, how can you explore each one and clear out all the clutter? How can you know what your blind spots are? This resource intends to help you figure that out.
Is introduced in under 2 minutes. The linked content and authors stands on their own merit – as with anything in life, one should explore topics independently and find the path and experts that make the most sense to them. My aim is simply to point the layers and teachers out, and provide jumping-off points to learn.
As this stack is continually updated, each layer will:
- Introduce a few experts and their resources
- Link related reddit discussion forums (if applicable)
- Link advanced ideas and guidance (if applicable)
- Should I explore the topics in order?
The stack is ordered in a priority I believe would be helpful, but it is not necessary to explore that way. Proceed in any order you wish.
- Do I need all topics?
The more you explore, the more it will strengthen the overall effort, but not all topics are necessary to see great benefit in your life. You will notice that as you explore each layer, they all begin to touch each other like dominos.
If you have any questions please post them on any article - I'll follow up quickly - usually the same day. Happy to brainstorm and would love to hear about your challenges and journey.
