Remember this recent post about getting the right people around you? People who love you enough to call you on your stuff – when you’re acting out, or doing other harmful or self-destructive behavior. Someone asked what happens when you don’t have them?
Really. If you don’t have people around you to check things out, you enter an echo chamber where your confirmation bias about things eventually leads you to self-delusion.
One of the commenters on that post said he felt he had good people around him, but they’re not really acting as a check on potentially addictive behavior.
So what’s the cause?
In scenarios like this, most of the time, the problem isn’t with the people around you. The problem is YOU.
But you probably knew that already. So what do you have to change? That’s what we’ll explore in the next post. Until then, please share any thoughts you have below.
