Those old enough will know that if you play a broken record, it will keep playing as the stylus gets stuck in the rut and the same thing will play over, and over, and over. Until we change the record.
The record won’t change itself we have to do it if we want a different tune.
The road to change is a long one and a challenging one at times.
The challenge is, you have to deal with realisations that the person you once were, or still sometimes are, wasn’t always the person that you are proud of. Made choices, that you now see as bad ones.
On the road to change, you have to accept that you were wrong in the past. It takes courage to accept that you were wrong or your choices were bad.
The easy route is to carry on believing that it’s others who were wrong, that you do not need to change.
We are all human, so there is no judgement if we slip occasionally, if we are not perfect. The thing is, if we extend that kindness to ourselves, which we could choose to do, we could also choose to extend that kindness to others, as they are human too.
