Trust yourself to know what’s right
Sometimes we find ourselves with people or in places we can’t adapt to. No matter how hard we try, no matter how we try, no matter how much we want it to, just doesn’t feel right. Doesn’t fit.
Sometimes in situations like these we revert to old ways of thinking, believing, and feeling. There must be something wrong with me if I don’t like this, if this isn’t working. If I try harder, control my emotions, things will start to work.
Those are the times we may begin to feel confused, weak, scattered, uncertain. We abandon ourselves. Our emotions disappear. Our passion wanes. We may begin sleeping, escaping, drifting further and further away. Our soul begins squirming in reaction to what we’re trying to force ourselves to do. We may become physically ill. It’s as though we’re allergic to our surroundings. Sometimes, we may spend years in the process—-depending on what we’re afraid to face or what we’re afraid to lose. Other times, this process may only last hours or days.
We can take as much time as we need to listen to and take care of ourselves. But if we love ourselves, we won’t torture ourselves for long, because we don’t have to. If a place or person or situation doesn’t work for us, that’s okay. We don’t have to punish ourselves. We don’t have to away from ourselves. We can leave the situation.
Trust yourself—your body, and your heart—-to know what’s right for you. Learn to feel the energy of a situation, place, and person. If something feels right, you feel in harmony mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t abandon yourself. Leave the situation, or person. Try something else until you feel right.
You may not always know at first when a thing, place, or person is wrong for you. But if you listen to your body and trust your heart, you can learn to tell when it’s right.
