Do we even recognise our own character traits? We don’t see our own characters, but others see what we don’t see.
We’re either not consciously aware we’re negative, or we’re aware but we don’t know how to change, or we’re just not interested in changing because it’s what we know. We’re stuck in a rut. We’re comfortable, not because it’s the best place for us to be in, but because to change means having to come out of our comfort zone.
We know what we know and we don’t stop to question what we know. To quit the negative cycle means working on our emotions and that’s the part we find the most difficult. As the years move on, we continue to stay stuck in a cycle of negative patterns that become who we are. We’re comfortable, only because we don’t have to deal with change.
The sad reality is that many of us will continue to live with negative patterns and in doing so, will never get to experience our lives positively.
