Most of us have blind spots -- situations in our life that we can’t see clearly or, consciously or unconsciously, choose to avoid. Whether we realize it or not, on some level, we even fight to keep our avoidance alive. We justify our excuses and buy into our rationalizations of why we should or should not do something.
On a daily basis I hear stories from people who, despite what they say they truly want in life, remain in the cage of their comfort zone. They validate their justifications by telling themselves that they should:
- Not get into a relationship because they might lose themselves it,
- Avoid looking at their bank balance because it might impact their feelings of security,
- Or if they are like me, they convince themselves that they should not get on the scale because it may trigger their body and eating issues from the past.
