Getting Out of Our Own Way
Some of us have met obstacles along the path of life. Unfortunately many of us live with one stubborn obstacle each day, ourselves. Whether we are too hard on ourselves or can’t see ourselves honestly, we are most typically the creators of our own personal turmoil. What causes us to get in our own way? For me, it’s my mind. I think too much about situations and make bigger deals out of nothing. My thinking or analyzing just gets all convoluted and messy. More times than not, I witness people’s past getting in their way. They keep tripping on emotional issues from childhood that were never acknowledged and worked through. Sometimes realizing that we are all imperfect is the key. When we stop blaming everyone else for our issues then we can move on, get out of our own way and let some good stuff happen. What do you think?
