Anytime you reach for one of these, you are asking for a pace setter. You are essentially attempting to slow the rate at which you are receiving emotional and spiritual feedback. I don’t personally believe there’s anything wrong with it and I’ve used some combination of these myself. Sometimes life is just too much and you’re afraid you’ll tip over the edge. Know that when you’re slow to receive feedback, you’re also slow to respond to that feedback by making the choices necessary to move forward. The more you slow it down, the slower things will come. And if things get too slow, you’ll get stuck. Or worse yet, start moving backwards. So take it slow, if you must. Just be careful how much slow you’re taking.
