Why You May Not Choose a Path
Sometimes people don’t choose a path because they’ve encountered an obstacle they’ve failed to overcome. Rather than exploring additional ways to approach this obstacle (including getting new advice, seeking assistance from others, trying different alternatives, wearing down resistance, changing behavior), they stop in their tracks. This is self-defeating and demoralizing. It is tantamount to giving up on yourself, with predictably unsatisfying results.
Many of us know someone who has given up on himself. Their frustration can be manifest in many different ways: they can be depressed, jealous, angry, withdrawn, passive, hostile, or violent. They are often unhappy and disengaged from their own feelings. They have given up on the one person who can actually create a live experience filled with happiness: themselves.
