What you resist persists
The phrase “what you resist persists” is a powerful concept that can help us understand the nature of life and how we can change our experiences. When we resist something, we give it more power and energy, and it becomes more prominent in our lives.
At first glance, it may seem counterintuitive that resisting something can make it stronger. However, when we resist, we are putting our attention on what we don’t want, rather than what we do want. This means that we are focusing on the negative, which is like adding fuel to the fire. It’s like trying to put out a fire by throwing gasoline on it.
