HONESTY MONTH: DAY 25: “We have to be honest about what we want and take risks rather than lie to ourselves and make excuses to stay in our comfort zone.”― Roy Bennett
We all get to points in relationships, in our work, in our homes, in every aspect of our lives, when it is time to grow. Sometimes we need to leave one situation because it is no longer possible to remain in the space we inhabit. That is how life is…constant change requires that we adapt or grow in many ways.
Leaving one situation for another, or just because it cannot adapt to the changes we have made is part of life. This is where we learn to navigate, communicate, and develop those adult skills many addicts have never practiced in their immature dealings with the world.
No matter how wrinkled we may be, there is always growth that we need to look at. We deepen, we go into greater healing, or we go backwards. Life does not sit still, nor can we. As we learn to grow into the new paradigms that arise, we will have to learn new skills and new ways of looking at our life as well.
Nothing in Nature, nothing in the universe is stagnant, ever. It is all pulsing and growing and moving and changing. So shall we need to be in order to be where we are led to go. There is no such thing as a rut. Those who refuse to change and grow are going to be broken by life. They are angry, bitter, resentful, and unhappy. Everything around them is blooming, and they are stuck with old ideas and old ways of being. It won’t work, and we cannot make it fit, at least not in THIS universe
