Time and time again.
Okay, so if I have so much time, where did it all go?
This is the heralding cry for all procrastinators.
But I am not talking about procrastination, I will do that later. This post is about the repetitive patterns that we, as humans, being human, live time and time again. We know that certain behaviors are not good. So why repeat them? Are we so out of tune with ourselves that we:
- don’t see that the behavior is bad?
- see that it is bad, but don’t know what else to do?
- are comfortable with the “bad” part more than we are comfortable with trying something different?
- all of the above
It is scary stuff to wander into the unknown, the reliability of the known far outweighs the scariness of stepping away from situations or people that are predictable in their responses to our familiarly humanity.
“Hey, try something new. Try NOT using your weapons when you encounter this particular danger. It will be scary, but you can do it!”
