Changing our habits is, by all accounts, a difficult and frustrating task.
From something as simple as learning to leave the toilet seat down or turning one’s dirty socks right side out before tossing them into the clothes hamper, to the truly challenging business of quitting an addiction such as smoking, old habits die hard.
Some may not be worth changing. If, say, you habitually mispronounce or misspell certain words, who really cares? Your former English teacher, and maybe your spouse. No big thing, other than the way it occasionally makes you feel like an idiot.
