How Will You Know If That Is The Way To Go?

You’re surely not asking for the answer to that very specific question in your head, are you?

Because if you were, you and I both know, that the only one who can answer that is you.

You will decide which way to go and your decision will lead to the choices you make. Or you may choose not to decide and your decision may still lead to some choices being made.

You know that for every person who will tell you to head left, there will be another to tell you to go right. It doesn’t matter whether there are more requests to head left than right. Nor does it matter whether it’s backed by reasons you can believe in or not. What matters is that the opinions of others are based on their interpretation of what they perceive, not yours.

If you like a person and spend enough time with them, you will begin to see and perhaps, even foresee how they think, even the ways in which they may respond or react to given situations. If you decide to seek that person’s advice, then it’s possible that you do so, because you already know the kind of answer you might get. And what does that tell you about what you are deciding?

In many ways, there may be no clear lines sometimes.
There may be no simple answers, even if this is what we seek.
It just means that, ultimately, we have to place trust in ourselves, in what we know, in our perception and go from there.
It is not meant to be an unhealthy self-reliance; but sometimes, the best way we can learn is just by doing. By putting ourselves on the line and seeing what happens. By falling and picking ourselves up again.

So…

if you know which way you want to go, then go. And stand tall in that choice.

if you don’t know, trust yourself to make a call and run with it. It just might be the best call you make.

    Very good. May very well be the most important advice you’ve ever given anyone.
