The Power to Choose

May 31, 2018

 

In one of my last posts I reflected on how we can create peace from within, rather than looking for it outside of ourselves or trying to control the environment to create it. Another realization I had is that in every moment we have choices. I can choose whether to stay in a stressful situation, complain, try to control/manipulate it to my benefit, linger in a "woe is me" victim's mindset lamenting on how difficult life is, how awful people can be, and how unfortunate I am; or I can choose to remove myself from the charged situation to clear my head and reflect on what I am feeling, why I am feeling that way, and what I need to do (or not do) to heal my heavy heart and learn from the situation. In this way I am not escaping what is happening or repressing the emotion, but merely removing myself from the mental and emotional triggers, so I can think more clearly and find out what it is that I need to move through the difficult emotion/(s). As I said in that last post, you can use journaling, meditation, prayer, or talking with loved ones as a way to help you work through the situation to clarify what you are feeling, so you can gain perspective and arrive at a way to move forward. In an upcoming post, I will talk about how you can use the scientific method to gain more self-awareness, to design the life of your dreams
