But many times we say, ‘I don’t know what to do or say, what choice to make.’ But even doing nothing, or not acting on something we should be doing, is a choice.
Feeling good is a choice. Being miserable is a choice. Frustration is also a choice, even though it feels more like an accumulation of situations that trigger frustration. In the end the choices we make during this specific process result in frustration, which easily turns into anger if we don’t deal with the circumstances immediately.
Therefore, we must not hold the disturbance in our hearts and minds, we must not let it fester. We must address the cause and see what needs correction in our attitude and habitual demeanor. A quick outburst of annoyance, a slight sense of disappointment, or easily irritated thoughts become a habit; and habitual thoughts becomes our reality.
Many times, we fool ourselves by thinking that we can get away with lesser thoughts, and then we act surprised when unpleasant action follows. “Poor me,” we say, wondering why and where we’ve gone astray. Remember, negative thoughts are like weeds. They spread quickly if we do not tend to them. We must remove all weeds in our minds, especially fear, doubt, and anger.
