Decisions That Make Us Proud

We all know the self-defensive attitude of protecting what we perceive as ours. This attitude teaches us unconsciously to repress empathy and see the other person as a threat. Whether we’re talking cake, time off or doing tiny unethical mistakes, we often get to keep what we fought for at the cost of our self-esteem.

Each decision that doesn’t reflect the best choice we are capable of doing takes away from the quality of our being and shapes our character into something that we don’t feel proud about. Think of all the anger and the negative emotions you surf on, assuming that that’s life. That isn’t life. Is a personal choice of underperforming in life. Make the right choice at any cost and you’ll at least be able to keep your chin up.

Ethical Decisions in Challenging TImes

We are sometimes faced with decisions that can impact not only our wellbeing, but the wellbeing of the people around us. We might be making just as many decisions as before, but now we are dragged into the now and forced to project over the infinite of possibilities.

Responsible decision making is one side of the story, whilst worry is the hidden part that doesn’t serve anyone. For days now I am forcing myself to cultivate positive practices of visualization and affirmations. We generate thoughts that feed into a greater narrative, we might as well make them representative of our wants, rather than our fears.

An ethical decision might be not to give into fear. Looking after a loved one. Inspiring people to find humanity in chaos. We have great power within that transcends from the immaterial world into the physical world. Lets make the immaterial a copy of the reality that we envision and increase our chances for our physical world to transform into what we imagined.

Choose Human

Time and time again people do things that shutter our beliefs of what is possible. These actions can be extremely cruel and violent or heartwarming and positive.

We hear about violence occurring out of what once were positive feelings, but I yet have to hear about, let’s say, a butcher going about their workday as usual and deciding to do something different. They might decide to quit their job out of ethical reasons or spare and adopt a little being instead of doing their job.

We go about our lives thinking that we do our best, yet we are often not even halfway through exploring our potential.
