#5 Friends And Anxiety

#5 edit

You have to surround yourself with good people. They are like border collies who will nip at my ankles when (not if) I’m doing something stupid.

Did you know border collies nip at the legs of sheep to herd them? Now you do.

And the thing is I can’t just have one person nipping at me. That would burn one person out quickly. I need a gaggle — a team — to keep me from, well, being too much me. Too much me turns out to be bad. I need to keep it Baby Bear me. Not too hard. Not too soft.

I think Aristotle said something like that.

Hopefully, you enjoyed this little cul-de-sac of thinking.

Thanks for reading.
