Our brains like things to be comfortable. Sometimes, if we aren’t paying attention, it will automatically go to what is easiest. To take our healing and growth to the next level, we need to AT LEAST notice what is hardest, so we can make an informed decision. It is still a-okay to choose not to but don’t merely rely on your brains to do what is automatic. If it is uncomfortable and feels risky, that is often precisely the best place to go for the magic.
Take a deep breath and notice. What would be the hardest to do? Have that conversation? Set that boundary? Go to therapy? Make a note of what is hardest. When you are ready to grow, really consider doing the thing!
