Myths we live by…
… it happens to them, but it could never happen to me
… there’s really no cost to my overworking
… and what I do won’t really affect my body (I’m invincible)
… it (doing what deadens me, sacrificing my integrity, twisting myself out of shape) is only for now
… I don’t need any help
… other people get old, not me
… none of this is, really, happening
… there’s something wrong with me
… there are people who live without pain, grief or suffering (just not me)
… if I wait long enough (am good enough, liked enough, smart enough), someone or something will save me
… I’ll be happy when (I get the car, the lottery win, partnership, I retire)
… everyone’s looking at me
Do you live by any of these?
And have you ever stopped to wonder about the cost?
