Ask yourself, "what would someone who loved themselves do?" before doing anything. You will get the answer to do what is best for you to do, even if you don't feel like doing it. If you don't feel like doing something that is ultimately good for you, it's because for some reason you have resistance to that. It doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. Not brushing your teeth because you don't feel like it, for example, might be the result of of feeling resistance to authority and wanting to disobey and take control of your own life. But if you don't brush your teeth, your teeth will rot and you will have a lot of other health problems besides. So, you ask yourself why don't you want to brush your teeth? And you brush your teeth anyways because you know it's good for you.

If your resistance to doing something comes from a place of genuine fear and thinking that you won't be safe at all, then sure don't do that thing. But in my experience, not wanting to do something is only ever because of deeper unresolved issues. So, no, you shouldn't only ever do what you "want" to do, because that's not necessarily good for you. You should ask yourself why you don't want to do certain things when they come up, especially if they are things that you have to do/ know are good for you in the long run.

You can do whatever feels like best to do and still feel miserable!

The difference is an overal quality of your life.

If what you do brings the quality of your life up, you are most likely to continue going into that direction of improvement. That means you are doing what you feel is best from a place of love.

If the quality of your life is degrading,  than you are doing your best from a place of hate and ignorance. 

And if it seems like your life is going to Nowhere.... than you most likely stuck doing the same thing over and over again living the Ground hog day every single day.

Hey there!

 

Just a few things to say about this that will hopefully help.

Feeling is the best indicator in this situation where you're confused of up or down and have no idea what to do with whats right.  In this moment now think of the choices you have before you and go through each of them one by one.  You may visualize them or think of them vividly, now see how each decision if it were chosen, would make you feel emotionally.  The one that feels like the  most relief, or joyous, less agitation, or any form of improvement from where you are now is most like the choice best for you and your life from where you currently stand.  If none of them quite feel better, which one feels like neutrality?  This may be the best option in this case.  Remember, there may not be a choice that has strong feeling of improvement.  especially if you're in low states like depression or feeling overwhelmed, the choice may not feel much better.  But any slight form of relief or joy is the goal.  If you feel overwhelmed to the point that none feel like a good option you may need to ground yourself.  Do some breathing or sit in the dirt to ground yourself physically and take in the earths pure vibration.  This will bring you back to balance so you can make the choice again.  Or just make any choice.  Sometimes with physical or emotional depression our mind will not allow us to perceive any form of improvement in any choice so you may just have to pick anything that will move you out of that feeling state.

 

Hope this helps :)

Hi :) I believe the more perspectives, the better , at least for me,

Though it can be confusing .. 

I think I'll give a simpler suggestion 

Try just going with the flow and see what hurts (you or others is the same thing) Because if your not healthy, you're hurting. How do you know what hurt feels like? Well, destructive thoughts, projection, blame, negative feelings and emotions 

When unhealthy = not in alignment, we need to heal right, something inside is asking for integration. You start by listening to yourself, if you want to restore health and direction in your life. Shoulds and shouldnts are just mindfuck, symptom of still being in the matrix, so free yourself from that, you're on a "better" track

And if you do what feels good, and it includes not brushing your teeth (now), they will NEVER rot:)
