‘If I am self-compassionate I will rest on my laurels and never do anything productive for the rest of my life.’
‘If I become more confident I might turn into an arrogant ass.’
‘If I am happy all the time that can’t be good.’
These are the kind of problems people think about when being presented to change something. I am always astounded when people say these things because it means that they think that they will be so incredibly successful and changing themselves, that they will be confronted with the opposite of all the issues bugging them today.
The part of us that wants everything to stay the same forever can come up with many convincing tricks to keep us from attempting change but this is not very convincing.
