My Thoughts for 2017 – Let Conscious Be Your Guide but Beware of Manipulation and Guilt

Many of us set goals where we hope to improve ourselves both physically and emotionally in the hope that the new year will somehow be an improvement on the previous. We reflect on conversations which could have been handled with more respect and consideration and feel shame by our behaviour. Basically, we all want to be better people and a good rule of thumb is to listen to our inner voice before we open our mouth or type that email. Often we strike out at something or someone because we feel threatened.
Pause, and take a while to think about your reaction and ask yourself, “Is this the right thing to do?”
Unfortunately, there are people within our society who operate on another level entirely, and they rely on your guilt to manipulate a reaction from you in their favour. When it comes to these people, I tend to believe, “What Goes Around Comes Around”

  1. I always try to act and treat others the way I would want to be treated. It is always difficult to be confronted by people that operate on a different level but at the end of the day i want to look at myself in the mirror and be content with myself with the choices i made and the way i acted throughout the day. It is these simple toughts i think of before i react impulsively.
