Resistance is Powerful
Why is resistance so enticing? Maybe because what it offers you particularly when it comes to the issue of change. You have a love and hate relationship with change. On one hand, you desire to change because it means growth.
On the other hand, you are a creature of habit and once you are comfortable and adapted to your habit, someone or something, you don't want to change. There is your resistance. "I am comfortable and any deviation makes me uncomfortable".
What to think?
Resistance to change is one of the most powerful forces in the universe as well as the most rewarding.
The counterbalancing force is the push toward balance and growth.
Once you accomplish that the resulting feeling from the clash of these two forces is anxiety. Anxiety causes you to be right in the middle, torn between the two. This anxiety should move you out of your comfort zone which may be filled with pain and "comfortableness" (illusion), and into a new space of personal strength.
Let go of resistance, be more mindful, trust in your intuitive instincts, and move toward fulfillment.
