Self-improvement Is Dead (Long Live Self-improvement)

I’ve tried all kinds of methods and techniques over the years to get rid of so called bad habits, only to realize that the actual “bad” habit – if there is any – is the incessant need to get rid of bad habits.

All of the things I thought were sooo bad turned out to be not that bad, and are actually amusing and even fun. It’s called black and white thinking, and it’s something I’ve been mixing together to have more of a gray scale.

The irony of self-improvement is that we don’t need it, but don’t get me wrong; sometimes it seems like we really do need it. It’s just that, at some point, you realize that you’re the one causing all of your perceived problems, and once you figure out who you are, things naturally work out, but until that happens, maybe self-improvement can help.
