Until we try to change the way we respond to and view our lives, we often remain ignorant of the lie we are living. We are not our Authentic Selves. Instead, we have trained ourselves to accept as "normal" the distorted view based on the perspective of our False Personality.
Even when we arm ourselves with this knowledge and step forward on the road of change, it is so easy to slip back into the comfort zone the False Personality offers us. We may have been miserable before, but at least we knew what to expect! This is what we tell ourselves when we encounter the pain that comes with change. This is the palliative solution we often accept.
Be awake! Assess your decisions every day to see if they reflect your authentic thoughts and feelings or are designed to keep you in a familiar place.
