I paid attention to the pain they cause me, later, instead of only the temporary comfort/pleasure they gave me right away.I thought about the person I want to be, the life I want to live.
I set my intentions to do the good work I think I should do.I watched my urges to check things, to go to the comfort of distractions.
I saw that I wanted to escape discomfort of something hard, and go to the comfort of something familiar and easy.I realized I didn’t need that comfort.
I could be in discomfort and nothing bad would happen. In fact, the best things happen when I’m in discomfort.
