I eat crap and shame myself for it? That was my choice.
I hear something the wrong way and take it personally? That was my choice.
I spend my time procrastinating instead of getting things done, or doing what I actually want to be doing? That was my choice.
I’m not saying it’s easy to choose something else, but I have the awareness in the moments that I do these things that there is an alternative. I don’t always choose the alternative, that thing that will be “good for me”, mostly because I am in the habit of living in my stories. Choosing to create a new story takes work, and sometimes I get lazy.
