Don’t fall for words, fall for efforts. When someone matters to us, we make efforts for them. We make time for them. We make them feel important. We do all of that because we genuinely care about them. Not because we have to do it, we do it because we want them to be happy and their happiness matters to us. Just talking about efforts won’t make things right, actually giving efforts to make things right, will.
Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.
Pausing at the door creates a moment of space for your brain.
“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”― Thich Nhat Hanh
