Have you ever made a decision that didn’t turn out well? We’ve all been there! But why do we sometimes make bad choices? More often than not, it’s because we don’t like to feel bad. We only know how to escape our feelings, which can lead us to self-sabotage. So what can be done? The answer is pretty simple. All we have to do is take a step back and examine what is really going on in our minds.
Where Are The Feelings Coming From?
When it comes down to it, all of our decisions come from how we feel inside. However, many don’t know how to sit with those emotions. We want to run away or stuff them down until they disappear. This behavior rarely leads us in the right direction as it’s only a short-term solution. We need to look at our thoughts and the underlying beliefs or circumstances that lead us down this path in the first place.
Reverse Engineering Your Thoughts
It’s time for some reverse engineering! Instead of running away or stuffing your emotions down, ask yourself where those feelings are coming from and why you have them in the first place. If you can identify where these thoughts originated, you’ll be much better equipped when it comes time for you to decide about something important. By taking a step back and examining our thoughts objectively, we’re more likely to make an informed decision that will benefit us in the long run instead of opting for a quick fix that may result in more pain later on down the road.
Take Control Of Your Decisions
The best part about this process? Once you understand your feelings, you get to choose what action (or inaction) you want to take next. You get to decide whether this thought pattern will lead you down the wrong path or if you will take control and move forward with strength and confidence. You have the power within yourself; now, let’s use it!
We all have moments when we feel like everything is getting away from us and our decisions are leading us astray – but fear not! With some mindful attention and understanding of our feelings, we can start making better decisions that will benefit us both short-term and long-term! So take a deep breath and remember that no matter how tough things seem, your future is yours for the taking! Embrace it with open arms!
