To prevent (someone) from accomplishing something.
To oppose successfully.
My depressive episode opposed, successfully, my plans to run Wimbledon Common Half this morning. (See Running Journal *rolls eyes*).
My anxiety, opposes, successfully, my plans to be any good at “small talk”.
My mental health, on many occasions, has thwarted my plans.
Has thwarted my development. My romantic relationships. My relationship with myself.
Is it really “thwarting” if I let it thwart?
Or am I succumbing to my own brain?
Why would my own brain want to thwart my plans?
Why would I let it?
The mind boggles.
