belle infidèle

something i should remember

i want to stop feeling guilty and stressed out about my dissertation. i am going to make an effort to not try to "brûler les étapes." that is to say i am going to try to be present in the process. i cannot be any further along than i am at any moment. i am where i am and i get to the next place by going there. slowly and carefully if need be.

what ends up happening to me is that i am so unhappy that i am not there (in the process) that i end up mired in depression here (in the process), which causes me to make no efforts to get there.
