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. ;)

  1. Okay, you gave me about 25 comments, which is awesome. ...okay, you didn't really give me 25, but still; I appreciate them. Thank you so much!

    From here, there is one phrase that really stuck out to me--"Why does chemistry override logic?"

    Right now, my boyfriend and I are having the marriage talks. We're at that point where we are considering it, and need to discuss it. I'm ready to roll. :) He, however, is not. We both have our reasons ... and he, of course, is more logical. He keeps telling me to take feelings and emotions out of the equation and just think about our situation(s) ... but it is hard....oh so hard. :)

  2. It IS hard. I am not a fan of abandoning emotion for logic. There is a way for the two to coexist. The thing is, they will never coexist equally. Even if it's a 49% to 51% ratio, one will always have just a bit more influence at the time.
