If you feel the need to always questions your feelings, you always having an internal battle between what you believe is right & what the world think you should do...there is an larger issue. See we go to school and we are taught the basics of life, but we are rarely taught to listen to ourselves. We always need to run to someone for advice, to ask them if what we feel is the right thing to do, and look at our surrounding to see what everyone else is doing and try to follow suit.
The reason why many of us are confused in life is because we are scared of our own thoughts. We are afraid to listen to our own selves because of the PERCEPTION of others. Someone out there always has an opinion of us, and for some reason that is important. We take their opinions into consideration moreso than our own beliefs. It is even worst when we are listening to the people closest to us, because that is who has our best interest at heart (or so it seems).
What we fail to realize is that even the people closest to us cannot validate who we are. Yes they might not want to steer you in the wrong direction but they might. We are easily manipulated by the ones closest to us because they are the ones steady giving us TOXIC ADVICE. Its because we as a people need that extra approval of others, the acceptance & the unity we feel the need to cancel out our own beliefs for theirs. Thats a sad view sometimes, you can still be apart of your unity & be accept and follow your own belief system.
If your friends want to go somewhere do you feel obligated to go just because that what most of them want to do? Do your parents tell you what you should and shouldn't do because they believe they know whats best for you? If there is a new trend and everyone is doing it, do you feel the need to try it out for acceptance? Is there something bothering you that you really want to do but everyone around you is saying things that contradict your feelings?
All of these questions are the reasons people get off track. It is the battle between you and other people's opinion. Deep down you want to do something, but you dont want others to keep telling you the opposite. You do things sometimes even when you dont wanna do it because you dont want to be left out. You listen to others and seek advice about your issues because you need that VALIDATION that what you feel is in alignment with others. It doesnt have to.
We are all programmed with our very own road map that leads us all to our own seperate designation. Our own GPS system that tells us where to go in life. It doesnt match up with other people, its is only programmed to your roadmap and no two people have the same route. So when we feel lost & confused why do we feel the need to ask others for direction to our destination? If you continue to listen to other people you are gonna make wrong turns,detours & dead ends because they have NO IDEA where you are going! They are probably lost themselves and have the nerve to tell you where you need to go. Those people need to worry about their own GPS system and stop giving you the WRONG DIRECTIONS. Your GPS system works...listen to it. Stop turning it off and asking people on the side of the road the direction you need to be headed...thats exactly how you get LOST!
Some people continue to turn their internal GPS system off and listen to so many people that it takes them months & years to figure out they went in the wrong direction and it might be too late to turn around. When you listen to other people and realize that you are complete off the road, you get that confused and hurt feeling of REGRET. That maybe you should of payed attention to your own roadmap instead of asking everyone else where you should go. You have that what if feeling lingering inside yourself wondering what could of happened if you just followed your own Intuition.
Your GPS system is on point. It sometimes malfuntions with your mind, but if you can get your thoughts & your heart/gut together and really listen to yourself, thats when your life will be on the right path. Now there are people in your life who can guide you better, but only if it is validated by your own thoughts. We all get that feeling inside of what is right & whats wrong. If someone says something to you that is in agreement in what you really feel-then keep going. Dont change your mind for someone else, they are not going where you are going!
Do not keep listening to everyone for the answers because in the long run, you will have to live with the REGRET not them. Nobody can feel what you feel, you are wired with your own internal guidance system so they cant tell you what is always right. What is right for you may not be right for them, its your feelings but most importantly YOUR LIFE. Stop conforming for others. Deep down you know where you need to be, so make a U-Turn or the RIGHT turn to get back to your life route.
