What is dumb shit???
We all have moments of looking back and thinking, “Why did I do that?” or “That was a stupid decision.” Those are the moments where we engaged in dumb shit.
Dumb shit can come in many forms. It can be a bad decision that leads to negative consequences or a behaviour we know is harmful to ourselves or others. It can even be as simple as procrastinating on a task we know we need to complete.
The problem with dumb shit is that it can become a habit. We can get so used to engaging in certain behaviours that we don’t even realise we’re doing something dumb. It becomes a part of our routine, and we don’t question it.
So, how do we break free from dumb shit? The first step is to recognise it. We need to become aware of the behaviours or decisions that are holding us back or causing harm. Once we identify these patterns, we can start to take action to change them.
This may mean seeking help from a professional, like a therapist or coach, to work through underlying issues that contribute to the behaviour. It may mean setting clear goals and creating a plan to achieve them. It may even mean surrounding ourselves with people who support and encourage us to make positive changes.
The bottom line is that dumb shit is something that we all engage in from time to time. The key is to recognise it, take responsibility for it, and take action to change it. When we do, we can break free from negative patterns and create a strong and fulfilling life.
