With all that is going on in our lives and information coming faster than ever before, mental health has become a huge priority. During this series, we will discuss books that I am reading as well as excerpts to assist along this journey.

Our excerpt today comes from "101 Essays that will Change the way You Think," by Brianna West.

Excerpt:

Knowing who you are is grounding; it gives you a sense of trajectory. But when we assign words and meanings to what we know we like and value and want, we create attachments. We then strive to keep things within the parameters of which we’ve already accepted. Out of that, we create failure. We create suffering over self. We begin to believe that a static idea can represent a dynamic, evolving being. The ways we don’t live up to the ideas in our minds become our greatest grievances.
