It doesn’t help changing yourself and your life if you don’t change your environment or the things or the people who contributed to your problems.
We often hear about people coming out of jail, and they end up right back where they started, they get back to using drugs, getting problems, and many end up back in jail. Usually it’s because they go back to the same people and the same environment that caused them to start with drugs or getting in trouble in the first place.
And that’s how it is with most people who can’t seem to change their lives for the better, because the change will not have a lasting effect if we do not remove ourselves from the things, the people, and the environment that made us this way.
If you’re in jail and you get out, don’t go back to the same old friends and the same old places you used to if you want a new, better, and improved life.
Find new places and environments that are fresh, new, and different, that can help you change into a better, wiser, and more mature person than what you were before you got yourself into trouble.
You can use your lessons to teach others do the same thing; you can be a role model for other people who need or want to change.
You can use your mess as a message for other people to learn from.
Beware Of Little Compromises That Can Have A Big Impact
Don’t compromise your values or morals; even if it’s small compromises, it may have a big, unhealthy effect.
It can create a ripple effect where you keep on compromising and compromising your beliefs, attitudes, and behavior, and suddenly it gets out of control. And you find yourself doing things you shouldn’t do and being a person you don’t want to be.
If you’ve been an alcoholic in the past and you’ve made a pact with yourself to not drink anything at all, don’t start compromising just a little bit by allowing yourself to drink “just” once a week; then you compromise and allow yourself to drink “just” twice a week, and then suddenly several days a week.
And suddenly you’re back where you started, all because of a little compromising that seemed insignificant at the time.
This is how most people get into trouble; they start allowing things little by little, stepping outside their boundaries little by little, and compromising their values and morals little by little.
Beware of the little things that can have a big impact in your future; this goes for negative changes as well as positive changes.
Keep believing that it is possible for you to change your ways and to change your life. You don’t have to be that person you used to be anymore. You can change, and you will succeed it if you don’t give up.
