Good or bad, it's sealed. Now what matters is how you're responding to it.
Equipped with more knowledge & experience, we should be making better choices. But often we go back to the same. Because "that's who I am"..."That's how I've been feeling"..."I don't like to..."
If you don't know what to say, don't say anything--that's something I often hear internally.
If the situation arises and your precious is threatened, courage will arise. If the cause manifests itself, courage will arise.
Ask yourself what kind of person you want to be, what would you do differently if the same thing happens? Perhaps that will help guide our choices.
Life should be pursuing what matters. We know this but not always what matters. That's why clarity and confirmation matter.
Foster the right thoughts that'll help you make right choices.
