You ask, “Why should I change? Everything is fine.”
But the reality is, ‘everything’ is not fine.
Having to face the realities of conflict, chaos, confusion, jealousy, bitterness, resentment & depression is a painful thing …without even considering all those other feelings!
I remember sitting on the couch in my parents’ living-room, with tears rolling down my face, my heart racing, my ears burning, and that anxious desire to jump up and run out of the door!
But I needed them to understand me! And, what’s more, they needed me to understand them.
It was urgent enough for me to stay and work it out, so that I could sleep better, laugh at jokes again, and to free myself from the cage of anger where I had lived for years!
Now, years later, I realize that the lessons I learned from my parents are invaluable to my success! I am actually living the life of my dreams! I’m happy, not that I don’t have problems, aches & pains. But I have succeeded at what I wanted to accomplish, with the motivation to experience more and new, and create and re-create…That’s where I live everyday!
Now I realize that change is often a good thing, because it leads to growth!
When we accept the need to make a change, we open the window to possibilities beyond what we know.
