Because emotions dictate some of the decisions we make, it’s important we don’t rush into or make permanent decisions we can’t change, unless we’re totally happy with the decision. For us to do that successfully, we must be aware of how we feel in the moment.
Our emotions interpret, appraise and justify our experiences through out gut, which trigger feelings that we may become aware of, which we then get to respond on. Sadly, the thoughts that are stored in our unconscious also form part of that scenario, although we won’t always consciously be aware that those thoughts are the driving force behind some of the decisions we go on to make.
Emotions are based on past experiences
It’s the unconscious mind that deals with negative experiences and it’s the negative experiences that resurface, which then become the driving force behind some of our everyday decisions. When we are in touch with our unconscious emotions, we won’t allow our emotions through past experiences, to dictate our moods or everyday decisions.
Therefore, perhaps we need to think about the decisions we make a little more carefully and think about any decisions we need to make. Making the right decisions will always depend on our understanding, interpretation and how we’re feeling at the time we make our decisions.
It’s always important to make decisions around clarity, checking periodically on our emotions. As they say, situations are always temporary and decisions permanent, therefore a temporary fleeting moment around a mood that fits our emotions, could soon a decision we go on to make into something more permanent.
Always make sure your decisions are based on your present thinking and not one that is dictated by your emotions, or your past.
