Inner tension is a pain in the ass. There are little feelings I find more uncomfortable, more distracting and more unbearable than inner tension.
For me, inner tension typically manifests when my personal morals, beliefs and values conflict with what my irrational mind is telling me I should do, what I need to do, what I want to do. Inner tension is a voice in my head that pressures me in the same way peers pressure you to stay up late, drink alcohol and lie to your parents when you're in high school. Your gut tells you to do one thing, but that nagging whisper in your ear is capable of convincing you to do otherwise.
