It’s no big secret that people don’t like change. In fact, I’m pretty sure we can all be in agreement that change is uncomfortable, very much in the way that a pair of overly shrunken jeans are uncomfortable, and we’d rather torture ourselves with something feeling not quite right than make an adjustment.

Recently I watched an old youtube video where a Rabbi talks about how a lobster feeling uncomfortable is a sign that it’s outgrown its shell. The lobster straight up has no choice but to shed the thing holding it back, because it’s become too big to stay as is. I think people should start looking at the situations in their lives the same way.
Babes, instead of looking at that obstacle you’re facing as a challenge you want to turn back from, or the big change you’re facing as just too dang hard to be worth it, imagine that you cannot afford to stay the same. You’ve grown too big and way better (seriously!) than the previous you, and by shedding your limitations you’re totally freeing yourself.
I know it’s scary, but just imagine how much scarier it would be to stay stagnant forever instead.
