Imagine living in a bubble of anxiousness and inner chaos, never really stepping out of that bubble to experience life the way it should be experienced. This was my life for 6 years, and there was no light at the end of the tunnel. Comfort was a part of who I was, and a part of me loved it and a part of me hated it.
The question was, was I ready to go through the 3 months of pain to step out of my comfort zone?
I knew this feeling was something I had built up on my own, what a revelation that moment was. For so long I thought it was the outside world that caused my anxiety filled life. It wasn’t the case, it was the emotional states I consistently put myself in daily, it was the misery I created due to the irrational thoughts in my mind, and the comfort zone I craved daily.
I was a man chasing happiness, when I should have chased progress instead!
Chasing happiness is useless, it’s the process that leads to happiness that should be the main focus. I found that the more tiny little baby steps I took the happier I became. Did my subconscious mind do everything it could to pull me back into the anxiety loop? Absolutely! Normal, it doesn’t deal with change well even if it’s positive change.
As I learned more and more about the resistance I felt during this progression towards the real and empowered me, I realized I wasn’t alone. There were millions of people suffering from anxiety and depression that were also on the swaying boat of taking 3 steps forward and 2 steps back.
It’s a convincing game, and our systems weren’t meant to be easily convinced.
