habits and guilts ie, one leave u stationary and the other makes u move faster then you would like to, and in a direction you won't want to go.
habits are formed over time, and they might simply come out of doing something repeatedly, even if you don't like it. but you still keep on doing it, inertia, spoke about it in one of my previous blogs. anyways habits can be about anything, smoking is a habit and so are people u don't really love but are still with. both are as injurious to health.
habits make u dependant, even if u wanna get out of it, just the fear of leaving the known and going towards something unknown would not let you break out of it.
do all habits harm, well they do, they don't let you move forward, or sideways, or even backwards. ur stuck in the same old life. they do give u stability, but well, too much of stability makes a person unstable, so...
break out of habits, its not that difficult, just getting out of the intertia is and then keeping on that path for sometime. after some time you don't even miss the habit, and frankly, if ur a true person, every time u think of the habit, and if it was not a good one at heart, like the 'love' ur with who u really don't love which makes it cheating, well u feel guilt...
and well guilt, ah they rule don't they, everything and anything you do is out of guilt. its either guilt of not being/doing what is expected, of hurting people, of just not doing what we are supposed / expected to do and all other such crappy reasons. the problem with doing things out of guilt is that we never do it out of our own hearts, and anything which is done without putting ur heart in, or which comes out of any place except for the heart, is never fully successful, never perfect. it can never cause bliss, or as put in marketing terms, consumer delight.
so don't do things out of guilt, how to handle the guilt, well be truthful, own up to it and you should be fine. never carry guilt in your heart, it eats you up from inside. even more then cigs do, believe me.
so that was that, now what???
back to work now!!!
chalo take care.
