Even though we all encounter complications every day, I’ve never written a “Complications” post before.
When I was dealing with complications at work yesterday, I drank some tea and saw this simple advice about complications:
I’ve been working on simplicity in my life, but complications haven’t totally left. Indeed, since we gave away many of our possessions and moved to the South Shore of Boston, I’ve been encountering complications finding things I think I need. It dawns on me that this might be a complication of simplicity.
Too complicated? Let’s move to the simplicity of the other two photos I took yesterday, and see if there are any complications.
I see several complications there, my fellow humans. Do you?
More complications: When I was complicating my life last weekend going down internet rabbit holes, I found and took a personality disorder inventory test. There can be complications when you take personality tests without a professional to interpret the results, so use those tests with caution. I know I don’t have a personality disorder, but my highest score on that test was on the schizotypal scale, which is a measurement of “social anxiety, thought disorder, paranoid ideation, derealization, transient psychosis, and other unconventional beliefs.” With the complications in the world today, I do have some social anxiety, disordered thoughts, paranoid ideation, derealization, and transient psychosis, usually after I listen to the news. However, I believe those reactions are not that unconventional, these days.
I’m looking forward to complications in comments, below.
Uncomplicated thanks to all who helped me create this “Complications” post and — of course! — to YOU.
