Why would you do something you don't like? It seems so obvious.
If you don't like eating seafood, you don't have to eat seafood. If you don't like distance running, don't do it. So why do you hang around people we don't like, or do work you don't like? If there are other options that you prefer, do those instead.
The obvious reply to that is to ask about obligations. You need that job to survive, but you don't like it. You need to be around this person for reasons that you can't control such as if they're family, or a co-worker on your team. That happens, because nothing in life is perfectly binary. So what can be done about that? The answer lies in changing your perspective. The only thing we can fully control in life is ourselves, so we can either change our perspective on the situation, or remove ourselves from it.
Keeping with a bad job as an example, if you don't like it, find out why you don't like it. Is it your boss? The work isn't challenging? Morale is low? Whatever it is, once you know the source of a problem, you can change it. If the work isn't challenging, ask for something that is. Your results may not come instantly, but they will come.
Being in relationships with people that aren't in the same headspace as you can also be difficult. What I mean mostly relates to friends. Specifically, friends you've been friends with for a long time. As we grow up, we all start to head on our own directions and we realize that the many friends we had when we were younger want something different than we do. Once that realization hits, and you begin to notice the hidden drama in your friend group, something changes inside of you. You want to be free of the drama and have a better experience of life. That's why you're here on this blog: because you want to live better.
So what can you do with a group of friends who you don't feel that close to as you used to? You can either seek new friends, or reframe your relationship with those friends. Reframing your relationship isn't the easiest, and not everyone will go along with it, but when it works, it works. There's a letter by Seneca where he says that you should fully judge a person before you make them your friend and then after that, you must be fully open and honest with that friend. That will build a strong relationship with them. And that's the best way to have strong friendships. Talk about anything and everything with them. Question why you think the way you do with them. Expand your own process to include them and you both can improve your lives together. Strong friendships are powerful motivators to our own progress.
If you absolutely can't stand a situation you find yourself stuck in and refuse to leave it or change it, that's stubbornness. There are always ways to change our situations if you want the result bad enough. Someone once said that if you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, you will succeed because you'll do whatever you can to achieve your goals. What you may see as a "No" in life may just be a "Not Yet".
All of this isn't to say to always be happy where you are in life and not progress because you can just reframe your perspective. The whole point of The Process is to recognize your situation and always strive to improve it. Nothing is permanent, so eventually you may not be friends with the same people you once were, or you may not work in the same job. The idea is to examine the options you have and to choose the best one that works for you.
Life is too short to stick to doing something you don't like. Whatever that thing is, you can always change it.
