Ask Yourself...

#40

What am I doing in my life just because I “should” not because I truly want to?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

Taking care of the animals I live with, & cleaning up after them, because the people I live with, who brought them here, won't do it.

And taking supplements, eating healthy foods, & being extra clean, because of having Morgellons. I'm tired of HAVING to do these things in order to be relatively comfortable.

Giving people multiple chances with me. I don’t hate you I can speak to you but if I’m not your friend I’m not gonna act like it. Which frees my mind and helps me work on speaking up for myself clear and direct.

Trying to heal from trauma. I feel like I should, because if I don't nothing in my life will change. The sad thing is, it almost seems like going after healing from a place of should is exactly when I started feeling more alone and more in pain, and attracting even more painful experiences. Maybe what I have been thinking I should do, is the opposite of what is best for me to do...hmm. I am going to sit with that a bit now

Working retail. I'm grateful for the job and all I've learned, but i'm ready to follow my dreams. That's what I want to do and what I should have been doing lol. I think i needed to work to realize I could have just gone after hat I wanted all along.

Paying my daughter’s utilities... I already pay her rent so my grandson can continue attending the school he’s been so successful at.  We have many issues and I swim in guilt.   I have been stalled to the point of staying in bed for days, so I do things just to keep moving

Pretending that I want to look for a job when I actually want to live and work on a farm and be completely resourced and provided for based on my natural energetic expression and my natural energy flow.

Being overstanding within some relationships in my life currently - its burning out my energy and I feel guilty if I don't. There's certainly lessons of patience within those - but there's also change.

Looking for things to do and pretending to have a plan to do something  while at this moment Id rather just be in the moment and release all kinds of plans for the future.. Just being able to be and enjoy life and every breath for once.. I have had many plans but far beyond myself

Taking care of my mother.  I struggle with this so much. I always felt abandoned by her but I'm the only child close to her so I feel I have to out of duty. I still have so much anger towards her, its hard to reconcile those emotions and be empathetic to her needs.

Sending my child to school even tho he hates it and I hate it when I just want to be a non-schooling mother where we explore the world instead and learn through play and real life; staying in the house I rent because I can’t find a way to just up and leave and live the life I long for; doing my uni work even tho I’ve no idea what the end goal is; smiling at others when I’m broken inside…

Looking for a job. I don't want a "regular" job. I want to receive money doing things that fill me with joy or just receive money and be taken care of.
