We Get Used To Things So Fast

It’s a double-edged sword

Change often feels very hard when we’re trying to do it to ourselves, but when it happens to us, obviously we have no choice but to accept it.

Then, a funny thing happens. We adapt extremely quickly. It’s what us humans do. It’s how we’ve survived for such a long time.

The good side is this — a new activity or context which annoyed us in the beginning quickly becomes second nature. Our shower broke right at the start of the pandemic, and due to someone in the house shielding, we didn’t have it fixed for nearly a year. I now love baths.

The bad side is this — we don’t notice the bad attitudes, habits and beliefs seeping in. Before we know it, they’re just “us”.

If you don’t create your life, your life will create you.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
