And it is often that these conflict is for the betterment of oneselves. "A struggle to make MY life better"
But who is it that we struggling against? Who is the enemy? The thing or person that we always confront?
While for many, the simple answer (excuse more likely) is the people or their surroundings, look deep enough and more often than not, it is the Self that we find ourself against. The person looking back directly at us when we stare into the mirror.
When we fight ourselves to make things better, what does it say about us and our inner beliefs? Apply some courage and one thing is clear.
We fight that version of ourselves that DO NOT want things to better. That version of us that like the way things are (even if it is painful) for fear of the unknown will send shivers down many spines.
That conversation that says, "better to deal with the evils that I know than the ones that I don't". The conversation that keeps us stuck in our present predicament.
At this point, the biggest question to be asked is "Really, do I WANT to change? Because if I'm struggling to change, then perhaps I don't want change in the first place!"
If we want change, just be the change. Be free, be brave be bold and embrace it.
Because to resist it just says we do not want it.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson
