“It Feels Good”

25 Jun

Are you driven by the feel factor?

I am amazed at how many people are driven to make choices and sometimes, rest in indecision, in an effort to reinforce feeling good.  We have become averse to change within our lives or externally because the feelings associated with that change make us uncomfortable. We at times even perpetuate dishonesty as a means to maintain the feeling. The truth though is that in doing so, we are cheating ourselves out of reaching our true potential. None of us are perfect, and acknowledging that means that some adjustments have to be made within our lives and how we choose to interact (or avoid) with the world. Change can be challenging and the feelings associated with them can leave us in a state of discontent, but not much in life is permanent and those feelings are often fleeting. We are all works in progress and “without struggle there is no progress (Frederick Douglass).”
