Why You Need To Face Your Reality
When I woke up this morning I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t happy with the way I looked, with the way I felt about myself and the way my life was going. I’d let myself slip in certain areas of my life.
It’s easy to pull the wool over your own eyes and accept that this is just how things “are” and that everything is “okay”. Do this for too long and you’ll end up coasting and becoming content. Avoid this at all costs. Being content for too long will slow you down. You will become complacent.
For the past few weeks I’d been lying to myself about the reality of my situation. I’m willing to bet that you are lying to yourself about the reality of your situation too. It’s human nature. It’s uncomfortable to tell yourself that you aren’t happy with the way your life is going and that you need to make a change.
Well you know what? You’ll fuck your life up even more if you continue to ignore your feelings and continue down the path you are going. You have to make a change. You have to take action. You owe it to yourself.
But here’s the thing, it’s okay to not feel 100% about yourself. It’s okay. Because without that feeling you can’t change anything. Without facing the reality of your situation you can’t begin to change the direction your life is going. Admit to yourself that you aren’t happy. It’s time to change your reality. Only then can you start to move on.
