Not to get hung up on semantics, but I don’t think our feelings lie. What you described were thoughts — worrying about the ideas around your writing career. Our feelings provide valuable information because they let us know what’s happening on the physical level. If anything, the physical symptoms of your anxiety let you know that you needed to take a break. Sorry, I love your writing, and I agree with you most of the time, but I think society has done too much damage trying to discount our feelings. Not trusting the sensations we experience is exactly what leads to disconnection and delusion.
