There’s a particular food I like to eat, but every time I eat it I develop a tummy ache 😦
Yet each time I have the option to choose this item, I do so again and again.
Why would I do such a thing? Especially when I know what the outcome will be.
Time and time again we make choices that are not in our best interest. We often do so out of fear. Fear of the unknown. It’s easier to do what we’ve always done than it is to change. We stay in relationships that are unhealthy, we stay in career fields that are unfulfilling, we eat foods that are killing us slowly. We repeat detrimental behaviors habitually, knowing full well the outcome. Why do we resist much needed change? Why is it so hard to let go of things that no longer work for us? Albert Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Are we insane?
What in your life has run its course? What relationships, behaviors, and practices have stopped producing good fruit? Do you have the courage to let go?
