Ask Yourself...


What risk am I taking and what risk am I not taking right now and why? 

(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.

I am taking risks by sharing honestly how I feel in AA meetings in order to attract like minded people or let them find me.


The risk I am not taking is swearing off my ex forever blocking him and making a definitive decision to cut him off.  I am not doing this because I never felt such energetic sensations about someone I’ve dated, I feel compatible in the energetic world, it’s just his physical self doesn’t want growth but his non physical self does.  I also am not cutting him off because he ghosted me and I want him to come back to me first.  I always want to leave a relationship with the power. It hurts to know someone else is controlling whether we speak or not.  Then again, I really do feel a strong non physical pull towards him and it is very confusing because it isn’t an anxious inhale, non physically he feels like a contented exhale that feels safe.  Physically it feels like an anxious inhale.  But I guess I could still be lying to myself and it’s hard to know what’s true regarding this person I still want very badly.

i'm taking the risk of loving myself no matter what my circumstances are. yes, it is a risk to me. it's scary and it could create conflict with the people that benefit from me hating myself. but i want to take this risk, because now i have a person i really love, and his positive influence on my life is enough to make me love myself. 

i'm not taking the risk of fully following my passions. i'm tip toeing around them, without fully committing to them. i first want to be stable in raising my vibration.

A risk that I'm taking right now is living in a new city with no friends other than my girlfriend.


A risk I am not taking is genuinely opening up the door for intimacy and compassion and kindness within my relationship. I'm closing off because it feels more safe to do so. I have emeshment issues and it kills me that I can't casually do things like going to the grocery store with her without feeling strangled.

I want to take the risk of losing the connection from my mother's side of the family, and feeling shame and guilt for cutting them out of my life, because I really need to remove toxiticity from my life and figure out my shit. My partner is heavily impacted by my suffering and it's unfair, I expect him to be unconditional present with my pain. I will book a vipassana-retreat.

I am sooo anxious and torn still about cutting my family off, since I really don't want to lose my nephew (he's 11)😭😭

I am risking a potentially fulfilling life for keeping what is and avoiding loss or change because I have never been supported with who I am and that made me believe if nobody's going to be with me whatever I do then there's no point of doing anything.

I am not risking a potential loss or change for a life lived as life is because I am on a fence on everything. I am terrified with commitment.

I'm (emotionally) unaware that I'm choosing the risk to loose my son. 

(because if I did loose him, Ide probably awaken to the present and my feelings again, and it's needed) 

And Im not risking to ask anyone for help, neither do I put alot of effort into bettering my situation. 

Because others do more damage than their good and can't be trusted, period. And it's going to fail anyways, I'm frightened to death, how am I going to raise a child all on my own, at rock-bottom of society, when I'm mentally unstable, and unable to feel my feelings and even unable to meet my own needs. How? 

I feel so much tension in my head, really Im matched potatoes. In this state I'm unable to relax and feel anything (other than physical pain, head aches) but with small baby you have no time to relax. 

Maybe I'm also just utilizing my energy and time unwisely. 

I feel like this is a manipulativ covert way to get help. Taking myself to a mental breakdown, as to receive togetherness, belonging, help. 

OH this is so familiar I haven't changed at all.
