Ugh. My therapist said something very similar to me this last week. She brought up the whole idea of "fake it till ya make it" which is a very popular and much-used slogan in the 12-step world.
And let me tell you it's exhausting. It takes so much effort for me to "fake it" that by the time I get home, all I want to do is sleep. It seems like it shouldn't be this much work! I know, I know, change is NOT easy.
Especially when you despise change the way I seem to. I do like to hang back and say things like, "I'll try that when I feel better." Or, "I'm not ready to try that yet."
You know what I'm talking about. So does my therapist.
If nothing changes, then nothing changes.
And something's gotta change.
