I'm not here to convince you that people are good, because you already know that. My intention is to turn your attention to the things that create a contradiction with that fact. Meaning that while I believe that people are good, my thoughts and actions still carry doubt when it comes to everyday life.
Many people struggle to let go of things they suffer from in their lives. When emotions overwhelm us, we get entangled in them, unable to get passed what is bothering us. We tend to believe that something needs to happen, or we need to do something, to change something in ourselves or others to escape what we feel. If you struggle in your mind unable to let go of what is bothering you, this is for you.
Sometimes when we are lied to, we call it deception, disrespect, other times we call it a betrayal. Either way, you look at it, we feel hurt, and the reason we get hurt is that we depend on other people's opinions about us. And when we find out that our source of approval was dishonest we begin to question our own worthiness
What we need to understand is that emotions are guidance to achieve our true desires, nothing more and nothing less. When you feel good, you are following your guidance, when you feel bad, you are not. The problem is that most people perceive emotions as unchangeable facts. And since we don't question facts we don't inquire about their purpose.
Life tends to sway us from side to side, put us down, show us that what we want is not realistic. Society influences us about how we need to live our lives and judges us if we divert from the conventual ways of living. As a result, we prefer to isolate and avoid people that lecture us how we should live our lives
