It is puzzling to watch people not taking any actions that would make a lot of sense for them to take. They will cling, tooth and nail, to some status quo that only they see: it seems that they don’t want to find out that they can, and they don’t want to find out that they can’t.
This relegates them into the status of has-been, or never-been. You can’t hold onto anything, because anything that isn’t growing is dying. And you can’t become something more without growing.
After your anchor-to-doom attachment is pulled… A whole new set of choices show up… Will you choose differently? All future depends on that.

I used to have clients and friends that their biggest complaint of others was that they wanted them to suck it up.
What does it mean ‘suck it up’? It simply means: “stop complaining, and say “f… it!” and move on.
This seems the hardest thing for humans to do… maybe even harder than summoning the courage to be alone, to read, to stop overeating, or do some “real” work.
