There are many times we do this in our lives,
even if its at an unconsciousness level.
Some people stay in terrible (or sometimes even abusive) relationships
they have already been committed to it for so many years.
what about sticking with a diet
(for weight loss)
that doesnt even work
but you already spent so much time
and money committing to it
that you dont want to let it go.
I was encouraging a friend to try Intermittent Fasting
but the protocol she was on
encouraged eating small meals many times a day
(even though it didnt yield much results),
but she spent too much time/money on it,
so she couldnt just let it go.
These are all examples
clinging to ‘mistakes’
but cannot let it go
because we were so committed to it.
