Dealing with a lot of impending change in my life at the moment. None of it is bad, though bittersweet. The more emotions involved in something the more confusing it becomes; and if left unchecked the more distorted it can become. This kind of change will directly affect almost every personal relationship I’ve made in life in the last 9 years. Not to mention myself and my training. Ultimately I know it’s the right thing to do for myself to grow into the person I want to be.
It draws interesting parallels between all change and why it’s so difficult. We’re often stuck between the expectations we have for ourselves and the expectations of the people around us. There’s this weird give and pull between the two, as people grow to depend on you for the person you are – not necessarily the person you want (or need) to be. The choices and decisions were made before you realized them. The only thing left to do is deal with the consequences, which sounds dismal, but it doesn’t have to be.
This is abstract and a bit heavy for my first blog post, but it’s as “me” as it gets, so a fitting introduction. Expectations and Consequences are the primary factors in what we deal with on a day to day basis. They’re the elements that give context to our current situations. The more aware you are of the expectations of yourself and the people around you, the less severe the consequences of the outcomes, whatever they may be.
Some gristle for the brain.
