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.
If you observe this moment, and this moment only, you will find out that you are already physically safe. Each moment that you are able to take a breath is a moment you are safe to exist in. However, not at every moment, we feel emotionally safe. Our emotional safety is compromised by what we think about ourselves and what others think about us.
Nobody wants to be a "nobody". Our drive to stand out and be somebody sometimes results at the cost of being happy. If you feel a burden playing the role you chose to play in your life, know that it is possible to choose a different one. The one that relates to you directly through which you can authentically express yourself, without any effort whatsoever
When you see yourself accomplished, happy, successful is what determines the way you feel right now. We all fall into the trap of thinking about our future happiness without knowing for sure when it will come. Live in our mind's non stop anticipations of the future feels like we're delaying our living to a later date. How can we arrive where we want to be today?
