The truth is that you are allowed to pursue what’s right for the person you are now, and then you are allowed to pursue something else for the person you will one day become.You do not have to exist within the confines you set up for yourself.
Procrastination is a habit that is learnt. When you tell yourself you ARE a procrastinator you are allowing it to become a label that attaches itself to your identity. It’s easier to unlearn a behaviour or habit than it is to remove a label from your identity.
No one wants to give up on something that they have been pursuing for years. No one wants to leave the person they have always envisioned their future with. No one ever really wants to admit defeat. Because all those things mean you’ve failed, right?
