I saw this statement on Facebook this week and thought it was extremely thought provoking. It reaches out to so many of us in so many different areas of our lives.
It seems that it is so easy to just continue with the "status quo" of how things are in our lives, even when we aren't very happy with how things are.
Why are we so afraid of change and why do we work so hard to resist it?
I often see clients that are unhappy with areas of their life and come to counseling looking for a way to make things better. However, when they begin sharing their background and the situations that bring them to counseling, I learn rather quickly what the real issue is. They have been surrounding themselves with people and situations that do not help them work toward living their best life--allowing them to keep them in a shadow of the "status quo.'
So, whether it is a good or bad thing that you are allowing in your life, as long as you continue to allow it nothing will change.
If someone is constantly critical of you, trying to control you, treating you unfairly, or in any way leading you away from peace and happiness in your life....perhaps you are encouraging that very treatment by allowing it to continue.
Worth thinking about for sure.
