People tend to get set in their own ways. We develop these routines, or even just have our own specific interests that we vehemently hold onto and only do those things.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
It’s been shown that as we age, our interests change. If we aren’t out there expanding our horizons and learning new things, there isn’t room for growth. Sticking to a set of specifics gets tiring. I believe this is a cause for depression.
Over the last few months, I’ve tried so many new food places and listened to such a wide variety of music than what I usually do. I feel so much better than I have before. Seeing the world through new eyes has gotten me to come out of a rut that I didn’t know I had fallen into.
I still struggle some days, but it seems to be a smaller window of down than it has been before.
Putting yourself in a new, unfamiliar environment can be terrifying. Believe me, I have passed on quite a few opportunities just for that fact.
Risk can be rewarding, though.
You might fall in love with a new culture, or scene, or even just a person.
If you’re constantly doing or listening to the same things over and over, make a change.
A boring life isn’t fulfilling.
Hit up a new restaurant.
Check out a different type of concert.
Spread your wings and fly, Sweetheart.
