Do we even recognise our own character traits? We don’t see our own characters; others see what we don’t see.
We’re either not consciously aware we are negative, or we are aware but we don’t know how to change the way we are, or we’re just not interested in changing because it’s what we know. We’re comfortable, not because it’s the best place, 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. For some, to quit the negative cycle means working on their emotions and that’s the part they may find the most difficult. As the years move on, we continue to stay stuck in a cycle of negative patterns that becomes 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 life positively and all that a positive life has to bring.
