When you read it...what did you feel? What did you think about? Did you remember?
I did. I remembered the decisions made without thinking...the ones I thought would ease my pain but which only seemed to make me feel worse. I remembered.
I remembered too the decisions that lead me further away from where I wanted to be instead of bringing me closer...the decisions that made the situations worse for me too. I remembered.
Did you remember?
the thing is...our pain? it isn't just physical...it's mental and it's emotional too...and it does impact how we live our lives...our thoughts, choices and even the decisions we make...pain impacts our abilities some days.
When you're feeling your pain...are your decisions always the best for you? Be honest now okay? Have your life choices always been the best for you and your life? Chances are the answer is no...and it's no for a reason...you're human and you're hurting. We won't always make the best decisions for ourselves... but...one of the best things about being human is that we can change the choices we make and we can choose differently.
When you're feeling your pain..."it's best to be hesitant, think things through, and be sure not to react and act negatively due to emotional impulses". Easier said than done some days I know! But give it some thought okay and give thought too to what you can do differently now moving forward.
If your decisions aren't always the best when you're feeling your pain...emotionally, mentally or physically...wait...do what you need to soothe your pain and do it without leaving scars behind too. And then when you're ready...make the decision that is in your best interest...the decision that will bring you that one step closer to where you want to be...make the best decision possible for you moving forward.
take good care of you okay?
