The Sign of Insanity… January 29, 2012

You know how they say the first sign of insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again but expect a different outcome each time? Well I wonder how one can do something differently if they don’t know what the problem is.  Awareness is different for everyone.  It can take the form of seeing the problem and making sustainable change to seeing the problem and being paralyzed and not knowing where to go.  That said there is also the category that doesn’t even see the problem but knows that their life isn’t what they would want.  Acknowledging the, bump in the road (I’m not a fan of calling things problems… they’re just an opportunity for growth) isn’t as easy as it may seem.  There’s a lot of fear tied up in seeing a “problem”.  “How am I not showing up?” is not always a comfortable question.  It connotes failure and our society doesn’t always look kindly on “failure”.  So what would happen if you were to look at this situation as an opportunity verses an obsticle.  Often times people don’t look within for fear of what they might find.  But again how can you frame that differently…. Such as: “I’m going to be alone for the rest of my life!” Instead you think” I’m being giving the opportunity to create lifelong lasting friendships!” ?? Fear is at the base of all catabolic (unhealthy) thought So the main question would be, How can you be more loving to yourself when these thoughts come up?  Also if you don’t even see that the catabolic though is even a detriment to your quality of life that too can have repercussions.  I understand that these feelings come up for Everyone but it is how you shift out of them that is the beauty of it all!!
