Breaking bad habits take practice and discipline. There are things I have been working to improve when it comes to depression. You get comfortable doing things a certain way so when you look to change habits you tend to give up quickly. It’s like you don’t feel right doing the same task in a different manner. You tend to lose focus on why the change was implemented in the first place and how the end result will be better for you.
Change can be a good thing and in my current situation it’s needed. It’s just a matter of how to go about the process. Planning for it helps but what happens when things don’t go as well as you planned? Sometimes you plan things the way you want or see them happening in the future. As you go through your plan you may find that you have to make a few adjustments. Making changes around decisions you didn’t have a say on is pretty difficult. I know this may get somewhat confusing so I won’t go into too many details but I have had to re-think things over. As I evaluate myself on things I’m working to change for the most part things are slowly improving.
My current job situation is really putting pressure on what I want to do and I just hope in the end I have made the right decision. This was not an easy choice to make it still makes my head hurt. Breaking bad habits is just the beginning of what changes I need to make. But making it blend in with abrupt changes is going to be hard since its happening so fast with not much of a plan.
