Fear of Discomfort?

Why is it so hard to quit things I know are bad for me?

Maybe just because I don’t want to be uncomfortable.

I know if I ever want to achieve anything worthwhile, I’m going to have to leave my comfort zone.

But it’s so comfortable there!

I’ve let my body call the shots for too long.

It’s time to put my spirit in charge.

Good friends

Crab crawling out of a barrelSome people don’t want you to change.

Ever.

Your growth makes them uncomfortable. It reminds them they need to change, too.

They don’t want to. That takes effort.

So they try to hold you back. Like crabs in a barrel. One crab tries to climb out. The others grab it and pull it back down.

You don’t need that in your life.

What you need are good friends. Friends who will help you achieve your goals.

Hold you accountable.

Help you get where you want to go.

Be who you want to be.

If you don’t have friends like that, it’s time to get some.

And ditch the crabs.
