Sometimes it can be so easy to avoid diving into our emotions, why we feel a certain way, why we feel a certain about ourselves, just to name a few things. It can be easy to be on autopilot and avoid our feelings and the reasons behind them.
I am definitely guilty of this. Avoiding why I feel a certain way, why I think a certain way about myself, and all that.
However, over the last few months, I have realized how unhealthy it is. I’ve started to really do some personal development, work on myself, and really change and face my emotions. I’ve avoided thinking/accepting my ADHD, how I feel about myself, and how I can make some positive changes.
Now, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is scared to make changes within themselves and their lives. So, many people may want to, but it can be really scary to do so and admit that we may be wrong, need to take responsibility and make some positive changes.
I know it can be scary and not always know how to do it. I’ve often wondered how to do, and been a little scared to do so.
At the end of the day, I have to just get over my fear of change, and just reflect on my actions, my views, and my emotions. I have to really question them. Wonder why I may feel or think this way.
If I feel something works for me, then that’s good. However, if I feel that I need to make a change in view point, or habit, or whatever, then it’s time to make some changes. As scary as it is, as much as I may not always want to or know how to, I need to make the changes within myself. We all need to.
If we want to be happy with ourselves and our lives, it is important to look at our values, goals, feelings and such, and make appropriate changes. Yes, it might be scary and may require some risks, but if it means that we may be happier in the long run, then it might be worth while.
This is part of why I am doing some personal development. I realize that I need to make some changes within myself, work on improving myself, and hopefully be happier with myself and my life.
