Investing in personal waste management
what system will you buy into?
Here in my town, municipal wastewater - has a charge. The water company charges home owners to take care of the rain.
Included in the price of the water we consume here, there cost of dealing with the waste.
Stormwater and wastewater both cost money.
They are expensive to create. Though once in place, ideally it can take care of itself.
And funny enough, despite the fact that there may not be infrastructure to deal with rainwater, and you might have a well, the water company sends you a bill for the rain anyway.
But in order to process your own shit, a lot specific things are needed. You need a big enough hunk of land, distance from water sources and the right kind of soil. You can build an entire system devoted to dealing with your shit.
Holding tank systems are less expensive than septic systems. They suffer from the unfortunate issue of capacity. They either need to be pumped out every now and then or they back up and overflow. Pumping and a relationship with a sewage sucker, is part of the price in that system
How you deal with your emotional waste? Are you on an expensive, efficient municipal system capable of dealing with an unimaginable amount of shit? Are all the things in place to keep the pipes cared for and all the processes moving along?
Have you created a septic system for yourself? Do you have a way to process your emotional shit? Is your process, slow, organic and with limited capacity?
Or are you a holding tank filled with emotional turds? Overflowing holding tanks of emotion are a just as attractive as a holding tank bursting with shit. Something needs to be done. Who pumps it out? Once pumped, where does it go? What does it cost?
Much of our emotional garbage comes from the stories we tell ourselves, the little voice in our heads.
Some of us get help. We join in a group. Processing becomes more efficient. Others, take things slower. We process alone. We need space. Then some of us just hold it in. Nothing gets processed and our shit becomes someone else’s problem.
How can we get rid of the stories that don’t work any more? How do you process your emotional shit?
