Lately, I’ve been thinking about the little to no progress I see in my life.
I’ve been comparing the last few years in therapy to the last few months in terms of positive changes that’ve occurred.
And whenever I think about it, I Get really disappointed, angry and frustrated.
But I totally forgot that I’ve been focusing on new issues that have recently surfaced, and that in itself is progress.
I totally forgot that new issues coming to light is the first step in progress, because these issues have always been there in my subconscious and now they are lying there in my conscious mind.
I’ve also forgotten that positive changes never come out of a sudden, without pouring your blood, sweat and tears into them.
I know that it’s difficult and unfair, but that’s life and I’ve gone through it all before, I just forgot about it all.
Maybe I’m just exhausted, maybe I’m disappointed in life and not in myself because I thought that all my issues have been solved but I discovered that I still have a long way to go.
It’s not always about doing it now! You can sometimes do it later when you’re ready.
You shouldn’t be pressuring yourself into doing something new or wanting change 24/7, maybe it’s even one of the issues you’re suffering from and that’s what needs to change.
We’re only human, we have our ups and downs, and we should respect that.
Maybe respecting your own needs is your first step in real progress.
