I’m a pretty high-strung guy by nature. I have trouble sitting still, I can rarely focus on anything for more than five minutes, I’m always worrying about the future, and oh shit did that girl just look at me?
So naturally, I’ve been advised to try meditation many times over the years. And naturally, I’ve found it very difficult. I’d give it a try for twenty minutes or so, have trouble, try it again a few more times over the next two weeks, and give up. Rinse and repeat two or three times a year. For years.
