We may have a bad day, not because someone is irritating us, but because we may be feeling bad. Although we’re not always aware, the feelings that we have are often tied to unconscious thoughts that can cause inner conflict.
If we were to unravel what goes on behind our unconscious thoughts, we would understand why we may be in conflict with ourselves and why what we feel has nothing to do with anyone else.
It’s not to say others won’t be responsible for what we feel, but unless we deal with how we feel, what we’re dealing with will always lie in our unconscious.
Once we deal with our unconscious issues, we can stop being in conflict with ourselves. We may often be in conflict with ourselves, because we fail to deal with unresolved issues that lurk beneath the surface that stem from childhood.
