Have You Ever Experienced These 5 Resistances?

in Freewriters2 years ago (edited)

Many people have trouble recognizing signs of resistance within themselves, or others, so below I’ll go over five common resistances, their indicators, and give a tongue-in-cheek nickname for anyone who’s engaging in them.


I’ve done all five of these in my younger years, and I reaped a lot of ‘negative consequences’ from the universe for them, including homelessness, betrayal, and more. If you’re able to ‘catch’ them in yourself you can make your life and manifestations go a lot smoother and if you ‘catch’ them in others, you can avoid getting sucked into other people’s drama, resistances, over-ego, and victimhood.

Ready? Let’s go.


Indicator: Constant ‘updates’
Example: If Todd is constantly telling people he's ‘working hard,’ and always looking for a chance to inform people of all his ‘activity,’ Todd’s likely not very hard at work or active at all, and is using words to cover this lack…

…but if Vince is crushing it in his career, he's not filling conversational airtime updating people on his 'action', he simply chills and shares his success when asked about it.


Indicator: (Over-)Self-praise
When someone tells Todd that his Instagram Grid could be better, Todd immediately counters with "well it's way better than it was last month", or "he's been too busy getting good at cooking" as if anyone cares…

…but if Vince gets feedback that his Instagram Grid could be better, he takes an honest look at it, and graciously admits that "yes, you're right, my grid could be better", then types a reminder into his phone to improve it when he's able.


Indicator: Prickly, ‘absolute certainty’
If Todd is talking stubbornly, claiming he's "absolutely 100% certain", Todd will likely be a hypocrite, changing his view in a year or two…

…but if Vince is expressing his views calmly, and willing to let others disagree, even when Vince knows himself and his subject well and not acting defensive, he's probably correct.


Indicator: Half-assing things
If Todd's health needs him to workout more often, or if his career needs him to put more hours into outreach, Todd will find any excuse to avoid doing so, half-assing these important tasks in favor of comfort…

…but if Vince knows he needs to workout or outreach more often, he finds any excuse to squeeze more of it in, treating each activity the way a child treats a new toy and obsessively pushing his schedule's comfort zones to joyfully inject his desires (like health, or career-growth) into his life.


Indicator: Wishing
When Todd wants to attract his soulmate, he doesn't work on bettering himself, he just buys Law Of Attraction books or posts on LOA subreddits asking 'is there any way to make someone love me,' wishing he can get what he wants without changing internally or externally…

…but if Vince wants to attract his soulmate, he knows he needs to nail down a stable career, improve his personal hygiene, and be a less needy, more grateful, more secure person, so he focuses his days on improving these things, knowing he's proactively made himself a far better match, far more attractive to a mate, with a much higher vibe.

That wraps up 5 common 'resistant approaches' to life (& some of their indicators.)

I hope you got something out of it, maybe reading about them helps you see them in yourself or others around you, and helps you decide to be more like Vince than like Todd.

And I’m curious, have any of you had any experience with any of these resistances?? Did you go through them in your past like I did? Or are you dealing with them now? Or does someone you know embody these? Care to share?

Either way, I appreciate you reading, sharing, commenting, and even skimming. Wishing you a great day.

Much love,

Look at me, I'm writing a comment. So hard sometimes to think of something to say but you know, just doing my part. I'm really good at it as well. Rarely make a misteak and always know what to say. Unfortunately I'm a bit low on time today but next time for sure I'll have a better comment for you. Besides, I've set my mind to it, focused on getting votes for these words, regardless. I don't do those things you mentioned. That's for chumps!

Have a good one.

lol, I'm extremely grateful for your misteak-free comment, and I'm very glad you don't do the things 'for chumps' mentioned, haha. And great to see you're still around Hive, sense of humor intact. Wishing you a good one too! :) 🙏

Still around indeed. Tried to jam all those misteaks into one paragraph. Actually had to watch someone self-destruct recently and they'd checked all those boxes off in the process, now that I think about it.

lol, well your paragraph was a work of art, good sir. And I basically self-destructed when I checked off those boxes in my past, so I'm not too surprised, lol. :) 🙏

That past offered you a lot to learn from though.

It did indeed, and though I don't regret any of it, I'm pretty sure there's more-preferred methods of learning, lol. 🙏

(P.S. Sorry for the late response, had hands full with a project.)

I can relate, a little bit, to some of the problems you conquered. I have, experience.

I did all of these at one point in my life and wondered why i wasn’t manifesting. Thank You for helping me grow and learn. And thank You for this! I know it will be helpful to others who are doing this and not realizing it. I intend for them to learn from it and change too.

I'm glad you've 'seen the light', lol, and I hope we all continue to practice 'Vince'-style approaches in the future. :) 🙏

…but if Vince is expressing his views calmly, and willing to let others disagree, even when Vince knows himself and his subject well and not acting defensive, he's probably correct.

This is a proper behavior. I often practice it to avoid conflicts, arguing and quarreling.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

I'm glad you agree and put it into practice, I practice it as well and it's great for smoothing over potential conflicts or quarrels. Wishing you a nice day, weekend, and all the best as well! Thanks for swinging by, #KeepRyzing :) 🙏
