Sometimes new outcomes can leave us emotionally stuck. Although we believe the outcome is right, it’s never easy working on a new outcome, once we’ve we left the old one behind.
Of course, if something happens and we have no choice but to move on, a new level of acceptance will always be necessary, whether we like it or not. New outcomes are inevitable, but holding on to the old memories of what we had, will often make us feel worse about the outcome.
Having responsibility for making that decision is a reason why having responsibility feels heavy. It’s hard being the one in charge, the one having to accepting responsibility on our decisions. When we’re at that point where we have to make a decision, we will always have an element of concern, but we should always choose to look forward with confidence, never back.
The mind plays tricks as it goes back to the old thoughts, to thoughts that the decision we’ve made might not give us the right outcome, but that’s not always true. As panic sets in, we can often be made to feel this way, but I believe the outcome will always be right.
No one settles on a decision they initially feel is wrong. If we initially felt the decision was wrong, we wouldn’t have made it. We must trust ourselves, our research and our instincts that the decisions we make are right that the new outcomes are right. It’s only human nature that when we look back, we will always have doubt.
Perhaps that’s why we must never look back, only forward.
