some of your habits

some of your habits are older than some of your relationships

The depth of your relationship

with your habits

and

  • by habits, I mean habits of mind and emotion (not than whether you always go right foot first into your pants)—
    • I mean your beliefs, expectations, fears, worries, boredom
  • by depth, I mean
    • the complexity developed during longterm interaction
    • the profundity and impact of longterm familiarity
    • the cumulative effect of traversing that much distance and time together across your personal landscape
    • that depth of relationship, subtle and quiet and strong—like the imperceptible and constant force that maintains integrity inside a cell

    the depth of your relationship with your habits is practically immeasurable.

    Nearly inseparable from who you are.

    And yet, change is what is required.
