Is it happening now? Are you staying at a job 'just for the money.' Or did you just leave a place where it was happening? You couldn't put up with the B.S. anymore and you 'just had to leave.' Dysfunction is defined as abnormality or impairment of function. Is work hard and frustrating? Or boring and slow? Are the people around you procrastinators, workaholics or perfectionists? Are you just going through the motions? Would you do what you are doing for work for free?
As I grew up, I realized what I wanted and didn't want from life. It wasn't till I was thirty-five, I realized I was living life in reaction to my father. I wanted what he had without paying the price he paid. But this is not a choice, it's a reaction. That was the year I began to design my life and live my choices. Fifteen years later, I again realized I was living in reaction and it was hidden under a truck load of denial. So I got to work on that. Today I have a life that is unrecognizable.
Do you feel the freedom to be completely yourself, expressing your full range of thoughts and emotions in any situation?If you are like most people, you may notice that you tend to act one way in certain situations, and a completely different way in others. Between work life, family life, love life, and the world of personal interests and passions, many people feel they need to adapt themselves to accommodate each of these different facets of life. Because after all, “What would people think if they knew this about me?” Thinking this way is so common we rarely realize we even do it.
