It is up to us to decide if we are going to acknowledge the feeling and then what are we going to do with the information. Yes… each and every moment you are deciding on what to do with your life. Many times, as we are getting our information, we are denying it and throwing it out without even contemplating on why this information is coming to us at all.
Many people I talk with and help quickly say, “I cannot do that, well no I could not do that, no can’t even try to do that”, with every choice that they give themselves. In other words, they stick with and even defend the choice that has led them to sadness, claiming they are never allowed to do what they desire to do.
They do not take the time to examine the feelings and the choices they are bringing to themselves.
Instead they like to get angry at the person helping them. I do realize that it is the frustration that they are feeling because they feel all I am suggesting are choices that they can not make.
Yet do they truly look at the choice that has come to them? Have they checked in with their feelings? This is the crux of the matter.
If we as individuals took charge and started dealing with all of our feelings when they first came to us and made decisions that would benefit us right then and there, we would not feel trapped by the choices we have today.
The reason we feel trapped is because when we first had the feeling the choice we brushed it off thinking it was such a little thing. Not wanting to make a big deal of it. But today… does it feel like such a little thing? Can you make the best choice for yourself today? Freely and with no guilt that others may not understand. Remember, others do not have all the little things you have built up in your experience so they can not share your perspective. It will serve you well to check in with your feelings first on ALL things!
