Writing things here that occur to me but that I prefer to keep on one page rather than as separate blog posts ..

People, Things, Habits and Relationships

We hang on to too many things and habits that no longer serve us and that weigh us down. To be clear I don’t mean people or relationships, although they may be problematic, these have intrinsic value and are ‘ends in themselves’ not simply means to some end. And part of their value to us lies in the way we serve their needs them because it can motivate and transform us.

The problem is that we cling to things and habits as though they were people and relationships and treat people as though they were things and degrade relationships to habits.
