I've realized what makes me the most frustrated about my health issues: I'm a "doer" personality stuck in a "watcher's" body.
How do I resolve this conflict between body and mind?
Do I settle for being a "watcher"? If I give up my mental drive to settle for sitting on the sidelines, I feel like I'm not being who I am. However, I haven't been able to hang out with a lot of my friends for a while because I haven't been able to keep up (parties, go dancing, drinking, eating out, sports activities). If I push myself to keep up with my "doer" friends, I know that my body will give out on me. Do I seek out more "watcher" friends even though I don't relate to that lifestyle?
How can I find balance when the compromise between the two seems like a lose-lose?
