Why do we resist? We can delay, style it out and just prolong a decision or choice that we know we need to make. But we do not make it, for whatever reason. That choice can lead you down a road of many years of compliance and quiet desperation, because in your soul you know you are living a life that wasn’t meant for you. But then you put on your superhero cape, and convince yourself you are doing it for the greater good and you make the sacrifice, because that is kind of person you are.
However years turns into decades, and eventually your soul which started out as a whisper, is now an all out scream. Sometimes people call this “mid-life crisis”, others call it a time in their life where they just had enough courage to say enough is enough. Whatever you label it, is down to you.
Some say you had to travel down the road of distraction to get to where you are now. For others, if you you had the strength to listen to your gut in the beginning, you may have learnt different lessons that your soul may have needed at the time.
Whatever the outcome, we are where we are because of the circumstances, choices and the people who came into our lives. The thing is, we can keep choosing, just try and stop resisting.
It may lead you down the great yellow brick road, without always having to go down the pothole road.
