INNER VOICES

You might read this title and think inner voices are reserved for people with psychological issues. We aren’t all crazy though,and yet I believe that we each have an inner voice.

Is it a good versus bad kind of thing? For me it’s not that simple. The ideas that come to us in the moment can be good or bad. It is up to us to decide wether to take action.

Sometimes you might find it is just a pleasant thought that moves you to embrace the idea and run with it. How many times do we say to ourselves though ” I knew it was a bad idea and did it anyway.” Where is the sense in that? One would think if we knew something was going to be bad, we would run a mile in the opposite direction. Why don’t we do that then? Like a moth to the flame we are drawn in. It could be to test if we can get away with something. On the other hand perhaps, it could be as simple as letting our wilder side go.

It might just be me, but I have noticed that the more out of character an idea is the more it wants to take hold. Fortunately they aren’t all like that. This causes an internal pull, like a magnet. Even if you give the idea a great deal of thought it seems to me it is just a check list that unlocks the reasons to justify doing it.

Most of these ideas could be quite harmless. just a whimsical flight of fancy, there are however occasions when that just isn’t so. You end up hurting yourself and those that love you.

When you unconditionally love someone, you can’t help but be drawn into what is happening in their world. So yes it is our life and we can do what we want. The thing is it might be our life but it intersects with the lives of those around us. Like a bumper car at an amusement park, you can’t just collide with someone else’s life and not expect to be pushed back. For every action there is a reaction. So stay in your lane. Do the best you can to not be tangled up in someone else’s life choices . Be the support that makes someone strong, not the cause of the explosion that tares someone’s world apart.
