Meditation is good, but you don’t practise it.
You’re too busy, or you have too many things to do, or you’re always in a hurry to get somewhere, or you’re too tired at the end of the day.
And even when you do sit down to try and empty your mind, you feel a massive sense of guilt about everything else you ought to be doing instead.
(Oddly enough, sitting still for 15 minutes feels like a giant waste of time, while 15 minutes spent on social media doesn’t…
…because one forces you to pay painful attention to the messed-up inside of your head, while the other lets you take refuge in comforting distraction.)
