There comes a time in your life when you want to turn a new leaf and abandon a certain set of counterproductive habits that are bogging you down. The toughest part is when the pleasure and ease associated with these habits seem to overpower the reasons why you want to change in the first place.

Just when you think you've taken the high road, the folly of your old ways suddenly doesn't feel so significant compared to the allure of your forsaken life. And so, you go back to how you were before, ultimately frustrated that you're back to square one yet again.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

When does it end?

As time goes by, it becomes more and more apparent that doing what's easy and doing what's right are mutually exclusive concepts.

I learned from David Glantz that from time to time, we should always take a step back and look at the grander scheme of things. If you're back to square one, then you need to move on. Life is always a case of trial an error. Inspite of what other experts say, no two persons can achieve the same results as we're all individually unique.

i just find it frustrating when you want to do the right thing but somehow can't actually do so, whether it's breaking out of a bad habit or a bad state of mind.
