I've been caving the last few days

Stress!

Stress has had me caving the last few days.

I decided to quit my job because I was being lured along by my managers into thinking that if I worked hard enough that I would get promoted. Weeks turned to months and eventually I figured out that they never intended to promote me. Working harder than my better paid co-workers and being passed up on promotion has caused me a lot of stress.

So I'll be job hunting in the next couple of days. I'm also moving in a week or so. All of this has been stressful and I've caved to pornography as a result.

A lot of you guys who read this blog are Christians or what not. I'm not religious but I do believe in some Buddhist ideas.

Being in the present
Loving the universe
Believing that I can create anything
Being detached

These ideas are very powerful and when I take the time to really live them in the present moment, it helps me cope with challenging situations.

My hope is that I'll turn to these ideas in the next few days instead of pornography during this stressful time.
