What do you do when you keep finding yourself in a situation that you’ve been in many times and never had any idea what to do each time? What do you do when each option you have leads you into one of the above options? Each one a dark road. Do you do what was done last time hoping for a different result? Or do you choose an option that you’ve never done before in hopes of a more favorable result?

The cycle has to end sometime. Is this happening so that your able to predict each outcome for each option the next time this occurs for you? But what if that option that didn’t work last time is the one that works THIS time?? How are you able to confidently choose that one if it has failed you before?

As unfavorable as each option looks, they all have to be weighed before making a choice. After all of the above questions are asked, the most important one that should influence the decision is:

Which option will keep ME in order?


Listen and Filter

We all like to go to our closest friends for advice on our situations because they usually aren’t unique situations. There has to be someone who’s had experience in whatever it is your involved in and can offer some advice and maybe a plan too.

Problem with that is when you begin to open yourself up and your friend begins to give you their interpretation of whats going on. Depending on how receptive you are to advice you’ll either agree or disagree with what they are saying. Usually disagree because at the moment your blinded by the outer appearance of things and are not revealing every factor to your listening ear. We also may disagree because truthfully we all have that one specific piece of information we are looking for but can’t seem to grasp. We feel that once we get it we can regain control over our situation.

When you agree, take the advice but filter it so that you may still remain congruent to yourself while utilizing this new found information. Feel for yourself whether it will work and then slightly incorporate it into your plan of action. Always stay true to yourself because once the advisers and listeners are gone from you, your still stuck with the issue and have to make a decision. They wont be there or be affected by it. You will. Always do whats best for you.
