Because emotions dictate some of the decisions we make, it is important we don’t rush into or make permanent decisions we can’t change, unless we’re totally happy with our decision. For us to successfully do that, we must be aware of how we feel in the moment.
Our emotions interpret, appraise and justify our experiences through the gut, which trigger feelings that we become aware of, which we 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 make.
It is 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 emotions that are stored in our unconscious, we won’t allow our emotions through past experiences, to dictate our moods or everyday decisions.
We need to think about the decisions we make a little more carefully. Making the right decisions will always depend on our understanding, interpretation and how we’re feeling at the time we come to make our decisions.
Always make your decisions around clarity, checking in periodically on your 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 make any decision we make more permanent.
The bottom line is always making sure your decisions are based on your present thinking and not a decision that is dictated by your emotions, or your past.
