Just because things could be worse, doesn’t mean you need to wait for a crisis to change what’s no longer working.
Over time, parts we don’t like about our life and habits that are draining our energy become tolerable.
Instead of using our time to change what we don’t like, we use the time to learn how to tolerate, cope with, and manage them.
We comfort ourselves by saying “it’s not that bad” and “it could be worse.” And yes, things could always be worse, but why wait for a crisis to change something that’s not working now?
When we’re in a crisis mode, we don’t have the energy and emotional stamina to approach problems in a productive way.
So don’t wait until you have no choice but to change. Honor the part of you that wants more out of life now.
Working with a professional can be crucial because we can’t fully see ways in which we keep ourselves stuck and we can’t identify our own painful stories because we’re too attached to them.
