Don’t Believe Everything You Feel
One day, while at the bank, I was listening to Whitney Houston sing “How Will I Know,” on the radio, as the teller processed my business.
When the chorus came, I thought I knew the words, but then I heard what the background singers really said, “Don’t trust your feelings.” Did I hear that right? I thought I was supposed to trust my feelings.
Then, the background singers said, “Love can be deceiving.” That’s when I got that “feelings are not reliable sources of information.” I could be feeling something for so many different reasons. And, a large part of what I feel is actually something that’s gotten triggered in me from the past, so how could it actually be a reliable source of information?
That’s when I began learning to discern what I was actually feeling.
If you’re that type of person who’s “willing to try” something, just because someone else wants to. Or, you can be easily persuaded to go against your deeper knowing and wisdom to do something to fit in or please someone else, this is for you!
