FREE SOUL INFUSION KIT: 20 life-changing strategies & bonus gifts

How Dysfunctional Are You?


It’s a decreased response to a stimulus that occurs repeatedly. It’s the reason why we don’t notice the clothes we’re wearing, or eyeglasses on our faces. We get used to the feeling.

However, we can do the same thing with the negative forces in our lives. When we’re repeatedly exposed to negative circumstances, we may stop paying attention. For some of us, that negativity becomes the norm.

In other words, we adopt the dysfunction as the standard for what is normal.

Are there areas in your life where you have come to think of your dissatisfaction as being expected? More likely than not, this is a false belief you are telling yourself. With real focus, you can change your situation with awareness and a conscious effort to make different decisions.

Dysfunction is one of many options. You have the right and the capability to choose differently. Your version of normal may be distorted. Recalibrate.

      Yup. We don’t take the time to really look because we expect to see the same thing anyway. Thanks for leaving a comment, Grace. 🙂

    I am so glad that I found this website… I am really hurting – (emotionally) – and have been for about 3 years now… I have become accustomed to the fact that every tomorrow is going to hurt, the same way that it did yesterday – the same way it does today. False hope is something I have learned not to do. My accepting this fact – although I realize it’s pretty negative – it has been the best way that I know how to self protect…

    There has just got to be a better way…

      Hey Kelley,

      The fact that you’re reading anything on this site proves that instinctively you know that you don’t have to stay in the same state. You’re managing to protect yourself from pain, but you’re also protecting yourself from the joy you deserve.

      You’re definitely not alone in this and you definitely won’t be the last person to escape it. If it’s that engrained you may have to list the help of a professional (counselor, therapist, life coach…)but just believe that there is a perfect option for you.

      Sending you much love and light. You can do this.
