Hmm, That's Surprisingly Difficult

I didn't realize this until recently, but one of the most difficult things about working on yourself as person is not regressing back to old patterns of behavior when you face obstacles. 

When I'm on balance, everything's fine. I have new, healthier patterns of behavior, and it works. 

When I'm off balance, though, it's the reverse. I have to really, really fight to not turn back the clock. Somehow, those old patterns give you comfort in those moments, even though it's false comfort. It's just a trap. 

It's not something I ever considered before, and it takes work to monitor yourself so that you can spot it when it's happening.
