To do the same thing over and over again is not only boredom: it is to be controlled by rather than to control what you do.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

      1. I no longer have time to be bored in truth.

        However, when l was younger l used to get terribly bored, l would have many, many interests and hobbies going, but when younger l also used to burn through them and l have since learned that is very much an autistic traits.

        The autistic brain, well especially mine and l should imagine many others are the same, l am constantly curious about things and fascinated with many other things.

        as l have got older, whilst l don’t have many interests as l once did, my curiosity still burns forver brightly, but and just sometimes about the oddest things.

        My writing has been the one constant in my life and l am more often curious about exploring different avenues.

        In early adulthood, it was this incredible curiousness that made me sample many things, good and bad alike.

        My philosophy has always been that l try not to judge people, and the reason l bring this up, is because of my curiousness and the fact that l have tried and sampled, tasted and explored many avenues of life the one thing, the one trait l simply cannot stand with other people is those who judge and condemn others for things that they have no experience of in life.

        I by no means an angel, because of my past, but my curiousness has and does still serve me well.

        Hence why l don’t get so easily bored anymore – thank goodness 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for choosing me. I don’t do these challenges as I’m hopeless at tagging people but here is a quote about boredom that is very relevant to me at the moment:
    “How some of the writers I come across get through their books without dying of boredom is beyond me.” – William Gaddis
    I’m struggling with re-reading and re-writing – hope that doesn’t mean my book is boring! 🙂

    1. No worries about not doing the challenge. A LOT of people don’t like to tag others. I honestly feel a little awkward about it myself. That’s why I always put the disclaimer in about don’t do it if you don’t want to.
      I like your quote here. I very seriously doubt that it would apply to you. I’m sure the struggles you’re having are due to second-guessing yourself. Which, in my opinion, you shouldn’t be doing very much. I’ve really enjoyed everything of yours I’ve read.
      Be easy with yourself. We’re always our own worse critics.🌻💌
