Allow me a moment of transparency. I’m in a growth and honestly a maturing phase of my life, and prior to now I felt the answer to starting this growth was getting rid of people I chose to blame for bringing me down.
The way I see the world now I see the ignorance in that mindset. What I did was find scapegoats that allowed me to ignore the pain of facing the interactions that actually needed the strongest boundaries.
Let’s change that frame because if I’m being honest with myself and all of you, what I created was an “excuse” to distance myself from people I found annoying. I didn’t like how that made me feel, and I felt I may have been unfair and somewhat harsh. So I decided to reassess.
Sure when we get to a point in our lives where we are growing, we may have new boundaries that remove us from some people and maybe even some circles, but creating a crutch there to stay stuck is problematic. To define crutch I’m saying finding new people to blame because we are afraid of what’s ahead.
That cycle all but kills the paths to our goals.
