Meaning: People find it difficult to change their accustomed behavior.
The breaking of ‘old habits’ is often part of our journey so that we may reach our highest potential and create our ideal life. If only we could stop reverting to those particular behaviors that don’t serve us, then life would flow smoothly. 🙂
Indeed, in my own life, and in talking with others over time, I have found that our ‘bad’ habits can often be accompanied by a certain reluctance to change and that our habits are simply the way we are. We simply become stuck in our self imposed ‘safety bubble’.
Yet a habit is just something that each of us have a tendency to do regularly. Each small habit accumulates into our general approach to life. So changing our life is a matter of adjusting our habits, one small step at a time. But change we should if we are wishing to achieve an ideal life. and ‘What is an ‘ideal life’ is relative to the individual.
You don’t eliminate a bad habit, you replace it.
So rather than focusing on ‘breaking’ these old habits, I like to put my energy into developing new habits that are beneficial and nourishing to me. This shift in mindset allows me to focus on positive change by staying committed to the life I desire, rather than focusing on getting rid of something I don’t want. Then, breaking old habits becomes a bi-product of the progress towards creating my ideal life: they are easily dropped because I realize I don’t need them anymore…….
