Rant: Weakness and enfeebling
It makes feel sick to read that list as I recognise myself in a lot of those (except no.3... which has at least made it easier to mentally escape). The only one I feel glad about is no.4.. it comes in very useful for missing meetings.
After a lifetime and now in middle age it's going to take a lot to drag myself out of that mentality. I would welcome any tips on how to do it!!
