Lately, I have felt old habits and feelings come back with a vengeance.
Old feelings and habits that I thought I had broken.
It all feels so familiar and unsettling. It is unsettling mostly because you often think these feelings and thoughts have gone away. But I am starting to realize that they are weeds in a beautiful garden, and if you don’t spend the time to find them, and tend to the garden, it will soon become overgrown, and so hard to manage.
What is wonderful, though, it that I am starting to recognize my own behavior. I am realizing what it going wrong.
And I am now reaching into my toolbox, pulling the weeds, and tending to the garden.
