Many times my clients and I come up with GREAT plans to start a new. Plans that will allow them to leave the behaviors that were not wanted and adopt new behaviors.
Other people have a hard time realizing that people can change, that change is possible.
It is truly a challenge when someone changes, but the people around them, still treat them as if they are still in the past. Change is good and those who cannot deal with the fact that you are in the process of changing do not belong in your change/life process.
Celebrate your willingness to change,
