Understanding Repression

Understanding Repression

Above: Light Jelly

We all have habits and tendencies that seem to repeat themselves over and over, despite our best efforts to break free from them. Whether it's an unfulfilling job, a toxic relationship, or a bad habit, we often find ourselves caught in a strange loop that we can't seem to escape from. This cycle of repetition is often caused by the things we repress in our lives, things that we avoid thinking about or dealing with. But why do these repressed issues stay with us, and what can we do to break free from this strange loop? In this blog post, we'll explore the power of repression, how it affects our lives, and what we can do to take back control.

 

Why does Repression Stay in our Strange Loop

One of the main reasons that repression stays in our strange loop is free will. We have the power to choose what we do and don't think about, and often we choose to avoid the things that are difficult or uncomfortable to deal with. But when we do this, the repressed issues never get fully resolved and just remain unresolved in our lives, waiting for our attention.

As time goes on, these repressed issues can become more and more ingrained in our lifestyle and take up more of our focus. The longer we wait to address them, the harder it becomes to break free from the strange loop.

 

Breaking Free from Repression

Facing what we repress in our lives is the first step towards breaking free from the strange loop. However, it's important to remain focused and diligent in this process, as it can be easy to slip back into old habits. Staying focused means being mindful of our thoughts and actions every day, and making a conscious effort to change the things that are holding us back.

Most experts say that it takes 2 months to break free from a habit, but it's important to remember that it's a process, not a one-time event. It's also crucial to focus on just one thing at a time, rather than trying to change too many things at once. This helps ensure that you are dealing with both the spiritual and material realms, which are both important for your success.

 

Why We Repress Things

There are many reasons why we repress things into our strange loop, from painful memories to bad habits picked up from those around us. We repress things because we don't want to deal with them and do the work, but in the end, this avoidance can set up big roadblocks in our lives.

 

Trapped in the Strange Loop

Sometimes, things get trapped in our strange loop without our knowledge, simply because that's how our environment is and always has been. We get used to it and think that's just the way things are. To break free from this mindset, it's important to expose ourselves to different experiences, such as reading, traveling, or meeting new people from different backgrounds. This helps us gain a new perspective and avoid getting stuck in the same cycles.

Breaking free from the strange loop is a journey of self-discovery and growth. By understanding the power of repression and why it affects our lives, we can take back control and make positive changes in our lives. It takes focus, diligence, and a willingness to face our repressed issues, but with the right approach, it is possible to break free from this cycle and live the life we want.
