Some of your decisions were easy while others felt oppressive.
You made most of these early decisions without telling anyone. You did not want to be challenged by anyone’s judgment of what you decided. For those of you who kept a journal on how you derived at these secret decisions, you had become more confident about yourself. This confidence came from your ability to trust yourself.
To the degree that you thought these decisions through by stopping long enough to figure things out from examining what you wrote about it, served as the early training for making well thought out decisions throughout the rest of your life. However, if you are currently struggling with your ability to make good decisions you will need to return to those early days to identify what originally happened. The intention of doing this work is to alleviate the pressure associated with decision making now.
Your ability to make good decisions now is based on how you originally made them.
Once the pressure that caused you to make those hasty early life-changing decisions is behind you, you can replay that decision-making moment the way it really happened. What would you have done “then” if only you knew how to first; identify the decision by seeing the truth about what was really happening at that time, second, what that would have felt like, third, what you now realize, and fourth, the decision you would have made now. ~ Linda Deir
