Resistance versus Obstinance

Resistance:  A force that tends to oppose motion; the capacity of an organism to defend itself against a disease; an underground organization engaged in a struggle for national liberation in a country under military or totalitarian occupation.

Obstinance:  Resolute adherence to your own ideas or desires; bullheadedness, pigheadedness.

See the difference?

Resistance can be healthy; even downright noble at times.  Obstinance never is.  Not ever.

You say you want to change; you say you’re ready to push through.  But when every suggestion (or teensy, tiny critique) results in a conversation-stopper, you gotta be willing to ask yourself, ‘Resistance, or obstinance?’

Is ‘no’ a line from an old script––something you’ve hung onto for so long, you no longer remember the reasons why?  Is it part of an ancient battle; an outmoded defense?  Does your ‘no’ serve you, (be honest here) or is your pigheadedness getting in your way?

Pride or growth?  The rest of us are cheering you on, but really,  it’s up to you.  Totally.
