We all have a tendency, to protect ourselves. Our physical well being and our emotional and spiritual well being.As humans, the emotional is physical for us. As for the spiritual-that is beyond human control;you need not protect that is indestructible. The spirit has been and will always be!
In our pursuit of self preservation, due to the way we are programmed; we rush to sever ourselves from painful situations.We give it the name of practicality and soothe our escapism .
My two cents here ; when ever you are upset or emotional- don’t take any so called practical decision. That is the time when you are most driven by your sense of pain and fear-you are utterly emotional-and you can never take a true practical decision.
Take a deep breath .Take your mind away from any situation you are in. Focus on things totally under your control – those things; totally unrelated to your problem-which make YOU happy.
Let things take their course, each and every situation changes. Negativity does not have permanence.
Don’t give up on any thing in the name of sacrifice or practicality. Know where your true long term happiness is.
Take that practical decision my friend, only when you are already happy.
Only then it is a practical decision – everything else is an emotional sham.
