We can’t change anything until we accept reality. Or at least our perception of reality.
Looking at this from another perspective is useful as well – we can’t change anything that we don’t think is real.
If we think about it, it’s actually a common theme present in different parts of our society.
The classic example would be from an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting. “Hi my name is [insert name] and I’m an alcoholic.” This example has been probably been over used in today’s popular culture but the truth is there. Starting each meeting by accepting reality is the foundation of making change.
