Break Yourself To Improve Yourself

There’s an age old saying that goes: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. For the most part, I agree with this saying. There’s nothing wrong with letting things stay at the status quo, as long as you’re good not seeing change.

However, for those that want to improve themselves, they know things need to change. And sometimes you need to break yourself to improve yourself.

Writing those words were hard for me. I know breaking myself is not something that I find pleasurable. I’m sure you’re feeling the same way.

Whether it’s from feeling that you’re okay as you are or the discomfort change can bring, we so very often don’t want to change. We don’t want to struggle with the next step. And we don’t want the pain change can bring.
