For some reason, there is a bit of a stigma around meditation. The Western world has been slow to pick up more holistic forms of healing, but if we’ve managed to take a liking to Chinese herbs, yoga, and acupuncture, then why can’t we accept meditation as a legitimate practice? If you’re getting into meditation, then you can probably already see how it can truly change your life. And when you find something that can change your life, you want to tell everybody about it! But don’t be surprised if you get a little pushback from your friends—especially those who depend mostly on medication to calm their mind. Hey, they mean well. They just aren’t woke yet! Here are things people will say when you start meditating.
You’re having a crisis, aren’t you?
People automatically assume that if you start meditating, that you’re having a life crisis. Meditation can be seen as equivalent to self-help books. But meditation isn’t a one-time fix; it’s a daily practice and a healthy lifestyle choice. You can and should meditate in good and bad times.
