At the same time, sometimes when we are taking positive steps forward, we do encounter resistance - from inside ourselves and externally. The human mind is often uncomfortable with change, even positive movement, because we are stepping into the unknown. Others people may fear we are moving away from them or taking something from them. They may have a limited understand of our situation and react with strong opinions.
Don't let inevitable resistance discourage you. Although sometimes conflict can be a warning that we are pushing in the wrong direction, it can be also be a sign that we are doing everything right, taking brave, positive, important steps.
