A few days ago I was writing in my journal and just as I was about to compare the present to the past, I thought ‘Hang on a minute, I’m always doing that’.
I feel like it was the first time I’ve properly acknowledged that I have a pretty bad habit of comparing the present with the past.
There’s nothing wrong with being reflective but I think the problem with constantly making comparisons is that you can end up focusing too much on the past instead of moving forward.
To end this post I have a line from a song I have been listening to quite a lot recently, ‘If you don’t like the effects,don’t produce the cause’ by Funkadelic
“A situation is just that, it has no special power to do you harm. Its your reactions that count”
