3. TODAY IN MY LIFE
Obviously, like my clients my character itself has issues, and they've all been there since childhood. Most mental issues cannot be cured, they are simply managed so they stop buggering up your life. Over a lifetime and almost entirely self-taught, I have learned to do this. My own issues consequently no longer hurt my nearest-and-dearest and I am ploughing on towards my goals, but every day I have to live with them in the back of my consciousness.
The one most prominent is to bear grudges for life. I refute utterly the suggestion that I am "holding on" to them - they "stick" to me! I would gladly, given the choice, forgive completely and move on - but the way this mind reacts is out of my conscious control! All I can do is have counter-strategies to prevent these reactions sabotaging my goals.
The most recent example is the "Saturday incident" at the Weekend Job where I was blatantly lied about. Though there were no external consequences, it took me a few days to remember my training and manage my thoughts and emotions. The wrath and resentment however will now be with me for life, permanently added to the dark half of my memory palace. I am not "choosing" this!
However, since I stopped being frightened, I have found the wrath generated by this issue a useful defensive tool. Those who attempt to bully or control me soon think better of it! Consequently, when I do have confrontations, it generally only happens once and the predator avoids me after that.
Though I'd rather not have a mind that reacts how it does, the strength and wisdom I have obtained in managing it has brought me a life that is generally blissful. For this I am profoundly grateful.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Life is filled with potential that is truly unfathomable. At last we are coming to see the enormous power it possesses. That is why we must never write anyone off. In particular, we mustn’t put boundaries on our own potential. In most cases, our so-called limitations are nothing more than our own decision to limit ourselves.
