Are Your Excuses Reasons or Reasons Excuses? (Solo)
Often, we confuse our excuses to be reasons and our reasons to be excuses. We are often certain that the excuse is really a defining reason for us, but we fear it because it might force us to work on something we really don’t want to, or face an issue we’d rather not deal with. if we really, truly want to change our lifestyle to move out of a rut, whether mental health, relationships, trying to attract more positivity in our lives, we need to ask the basic question, how much do we really want that change?
