Wouldn’t it be great if the universe put up a huge sign, maybe in yellow neon lights, right in front of us when we are making the wrong decisions in life? Something like, “You’re going to regret that!”, or something to that effect?
Since we are obviously not going to get these types of signs, we have to look very carefully to find the small signs in life that we are doing something wrong. If you continue to do these things, you are poisoning yourself.
Hence, why it’s called The Poison Path.
If you pay close attention to the way you feel, you will be able to figure out if you are about to make a bad decision even before you make it. Ready to learn how? Here are eight different ways to realize you are headed towards the poison path.
1. What Is Your First Thought?
Your subconscious is smart- it is OK to rely on it. When you start thinking about the future, what emotion do you feel right off the bat? Is it a negative one? This is the universe telling you to consider what you are about to do before you actually do it.
Everyone experiences bouts of exhaustion now and again. But is it happening to you constantly?
Are you feeling a deep, intense tiredness that makes it almost impossible to get out of bed more mornings than not? There is something wrong and you should look into it if this occurs. Exhaustion can be the universe telling you something!
3. Being Sick and Tired
This part goes along with being exhausted all of the time. Chronic stress and sadness can take a physical toll on the body as stress can cause the immune system to work overtime, making us ill and unable to fight off infections. This means that yes, you CAN be “sick and tired” of a career or job you hate!
4. Always Unhappy
You don’t owe it to anyone to be happy all of the time. But if you find yourself constantly miserable and sad, it may be time to look at your life and where it is going. You may want to look for professional help or make different choices.
5. Caring What Others Think
We all care about what others think, to some extent- that’s perfectly normal. But when you start making major decisions based on the opinions of others, such as the type of house you purchase or the partner you choose, you’ll more than likely end up unhappy with your choice in the long run.
6. Safety First
Are you always making the “right” and “safe” choice when deciding what to do? It’s really ok to make a decision based on your heart and not the most logical plan of action.
Not only that, safe decisions don’t always work out anyway, so don’t be afraid to do something out of the box or unusual. You’ll find out just how satisfying it can be!
7. Being Defensive
Are you constantly defending your decisions to the people around you? This could be a sign you are miserable with your choices because they aren’t the right ones.
However, sometimes you may just be around judgmental people, so take your time and examine whether or not the choices you are defending are indeed the right ones.
Do you have to lie to yourself and others about the important things in life? If the answer is yes, this is a major red flag. This means that you are either unhappy with the things in your life or you don’t trust your circle of friends.
