The Pain Of Changing Habits

The acceptance that I was not doing good was what made me begin making change. I’m now in the process of changing and it’s not like counting 123. It’s seriously difficult. Change won’t happen overnight. It requires not just the will but also a high level of dedication. There should also be great amount of effort to be exerted. It is all necessary in order to change. The comfort of bad habits is always tempting but for the sake of doing what is right, bad habits should be murdered.

I need to be disciplined for this change to be done but I don’t pressure myself. I don’t want myself to feel I’m being a perfectionist or something like that. I don’t also want myself feel that it is okay to do crap to my body. I want to be moderate in terms of changing, at the moment. Change is not a one day event. Still in whatever I will be doing and wherever I will be, I want to apply balance. I will still allow myself to break some rules for some smart reasons, but there’s always gonna be a limit and there’s always gonna be right time.

All of us are vulnerable. We easily incline ourselves to bad habits. However, at the end of the day we realize we need to embrace the good ones because those bad habits won’t actually make us feel good. Habits are practiced activity and we can consider these as something that grown within us. And, removing these habits out from our system is like undergoing a surgery to remove a foreign body. It’s possible but we ought to undergo pain for us to be cured. Like what I was saying, it’s never easy to change especially if it is about habits. However, with our will, actions, discipline and dedication it’s going to happen.
