Sometimes life can get so complicated, that is why we seek out what is familiar to us. We allow ourselves to stay in our comfort zone even when we know it is not in our best interest. It could be a bad relationship, dead-end job, or friendships that we have outgrown. Usually, it is a combination of fear and stubbornness is why most people seek comfort instead of change. The only problem with that is when you realize you want and deserve better. What are you willing to change to become a better you?
New Relationships Some people stay in relationships that they know that they need to get out of, but the fear of putting their selves out there keeps them in a dysfunctional relationship. They may say it is because they love that person but if you are unhappy more than you are happy it is time to move on. Yes, putting yourself out there can be scary, but just imagine what your life could be like when you find someone who brings out the best in you.
You may realize that you are outgrowing some friendships. It is hard to let of friendships that you have for so long but if you notice you are going further apart. It is time to make a change. Open yourself up to finding like-minded people who will share your same interest and encourage you when you are trying something new. You have the right to be happy, and you should surround yourself with people who will contribute to your happiness, not take away from it.
Changing Careers. Most people complain about how much they hate their job instead of finding a way to change it. If you want a career that will challenge and help you grow, you will have to decide to move on. I know that it is not always as simple as quitting a job and getting a new one. Trust me, I know that is not that easy to leave a job that you hate. So, do not feel bad because you can not leave your job right away. Just make sure that you are actively looking for a new one. That way you can make that change when you find a new job that you love.
Becoming A Better You. Sometimes we are own worst enemy. Many people are uncomfortable with making changes in their life, but it is necessary for becoming a better you. Only you can change what you do not like about your life. If it means leaving a bad relationship, change it. If it means letting go of unhealthy friendships that hold you back, change it. Make whatever changes you need to make in your life to become a happier, healthier, and more successful person.
