Why It's Sometimes Good To Go Through Big Life Changes
Did you ever go through big life changes and came out with a much better life?
Sometimes we do not want to make changes, although we are miserable in a situation. Why do we want to hang on to a relation ship that makes us unhappy, or a career we hate? We all know it's crazy, so what is it?
- Fear of change
- Fear of the unknown
Those 2 are normally the main reasons why we stay in miserable, sometimes abusive situations. I myself stayed in a bad marriage for 32 years and if it wouldn't have gotten absolutely crazy I probably would still be in there, miserable, unfulfilled, unhappy, depressed and resentful. I can only say: thank you universe 🙂
I did not say this when I went through the worst, at first I was angry and resentful, actually it was so bad that I wanted my husband to die. So I could stay in the house I loved and hang on to the things that were precious to me. Yes it was not pretty and I was not nice.
Now for the first time in my life I am doing the things I love to do, I love what I do , I love who I am and I am full of possibility for my life.
If you feel like you are not living the life you want to live, get out and do it. We have only one life and it's too precious to be wasted on people who do not love us, or things we do not want to do.
I believe that if we fully express ourselves we will find happiness, if we try to fit into the box this might not be the case.
So dare to be you and if you are in a situation like this remember that the changes are hard and life might be challenging for a while. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I know it, I've been there.
Sadly we are programmed to always look for security and I believe that if we are ruled by security, the reward will be a dull life.
Below is my favorite quote, it says it all!
“Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We're afraid.' 'Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We will fall!' 'Come to the edge.' And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” Guillaume Apollinaire
