Why Is It...
Sometimes we really have to convince ourselves to do something that is good for us.
Sometimes we really have to convince ourselves that something (or someone) is a very destructive habit and it's time to break away.
Why is that? Why are the things that free us so difficult to do and the things that harm us so hard to let go of?
Why is it so hard to believe that we deserve better?
Why is it so easy to let people walk all over us and just think 'that's the way they are' or 'that's the way things are' or 'we can never have it all?'
Why are we sometimes irresistibly drawn to someone who is 'bad on paper' in every way, and we leave the one who is 'good on paper' in the wings gathering dust?
Why does chemistry override logic?
These are the questions I've been asking myself lately.
Reading Rachael's 'Love Yourself' post from a couple days ago really helped with my perspective.
I'm reading and re-reading those words.
Because I DO deserve better. And so do you, friends.
Remember that. And remind me too, while you're at it. ;)
