About

Being Mindful of Your Constructs Society often tells you that you're not to be trusted. You're full of irrational emotions, possessed by a low-life ego, and unable to answer Life's Big Questions on your own. That programming limits you. It convinces you that you're broken, inadequate, incapable of creating your life as you want to. It tricks you into fearing and dissociating from your (unpleasant) emotions, which are
  • valuable and informative about how you view the world and your place in it,
  • a potential catalyst for personal growth,
  • crucial for critical thinking, and
  • necessary for questioning systems and institutions that don't work for you but that you're told to accept.
The mission of Mindful Construct is to help you become more aware of how you're directed to think and feel and how you actually think and feel. It is my hope that this site will help you develop the emotional resilience needed to find your own personal constructs, or belief systems that shape your experiences, through mindfulness and response ability.
