Is your brain’s pesky desire to experience joy and happiness preventing you from achieving worldly success? Simply eliminate everything you enjoy from your life and you will be back on track!
This author clearly drew inspiration from that black mirror episode where Jon Hamm simulates 6 months of doing nothing to get Oona Chaplin’s consciousness double to work for him, or technically herself. At the end of the “6 months” she is so desperate for anything to do that she agrees to be her own slave.
Don’t mind me, I’m just salty because I’m trying to do this damn detox and I’m hating myself that I can’t just be normal and find some medium between doing all the things and doing none of them.
The author is not wrong though, I’ve already cleaned my whole house and finally had the motivation to finish my Christmas shopping that I previously couldn’t be bothered to care about. I also appreciated the distinction between things that are exciting and things that are fulfilling. Lately I’ve indulging in a lot of exciting things and I haven’t had the motivation to do the less stimulating but much more fulfilling art projects that I used to enjoy. And hasn’t life always been a balance between hedonism and asceticism? I suppose I can watch TikTok and read smutty books in the evening when I’ve finished my work. Sigh.
