We all have them, so why is it so damn hard to make them?
In my opinion it boils down to these three things:
Taking a leap of faith. Albeit frightening, it could possibly be the most rewarding thing you ever do for yourself.
Valuing your worth. Don’t ever — repeat after me — don’t ever, let anyone make you feel less valued than you are. The moment someone takes you for granted or worse, takes advantage of your abilities, get out. Fast.
Fearing the future. With choices come chances which initiate change. Not knowing what is ahead of you, such as how you are going to pay your bills or if you’ll ever be in love again. This questions can just about rattle you to the core. Enough so for you not to take that chance.
But let me ask you this, is the horrible job or unhealthy relationship worth it? Does fearing the future really have to be scary or can we reroute our emotions to make it an exciting (and duh, adventurous) experience?
While it sounds like I am speaking to you as a therapist, that is not my intention.
I myself have been having some serious problems making decisions lately. TTT has always been a place for me to talk it out and rationalize — whether that healthy chatter be regarding the body or mind.
And this is your space too. So go ahead, have you been dealing with any life choices, chances or changes recently?
