Call it a comfort zone, call it a rut, or call it walking in circles.
The end result is still the same. I spent years walking in circles not really looking up to see that I wasn’t going anywhere.
Some choose to see me trying to get out of the rut somehow as an attack on them – that by wanting to change my life I’m actually criticising theirs. I don’t care how people live their lives so long as they don’t try to interfere with the way I live mine.
And if they see me trying to improve my life as an attack on theirs, then perhaps that speaks to their own insecurities in the matter. This move is about Darren and I – no-one else. Real friends will understand.
