You can't hate your way into a life you love

"You must endure things you hate to gain a life you love," they say. But a closer examination reveals this claim as a self-limiting thought pattern, whispering lies that chip away at our well-being. This is post two of five and it's inspired by a book I'm reading. When You're Ready, This Is How You Heal by Brianna Wiest

Life is not a zero-sum game
Life is not a flat-course race; it’s a maze. You can’t fall behind!

The first post is all about Life is a zero-sum game BS...

The Myth that Misleads

Many of us are sold on the myth that you have to endure a barrage of things you detest in order to land a life you treasure. This narrative is prevalent among career professionals, leaders, and those seeking growth in personal development. It's a sort of rite of passage.

The belief that one must wade through misery to reach a state of happiness isn't just misguided; it's harmful.

The Error in Our Ways

It's a fallacy to think you can hate your way into a life you love. Happiness and fulfillment aren't just end goals; they're integral components of a healthy life.

When you operate under the belief that your current discomfort will guarantee future success and bliss, you might be more apt to tolerate negative situations or overlook opportunities for immediate happiness. The truth is, life is not just about the destination but also the moments along the way.
