I Need To Trust My Journey Even Though I Dont Understand It

I Need To Trust My Journey Even Though I Dont Understand It

I need to work on this...how do you trust your journey when you dont understand it?????

Trust your journey only if it’s positive. We all have a journey to go too, but wouldn’t it be nice if your journey can take you somewhere that you always wanted to go and smile when you get there. Please don’t have a negative journey when a positive one can lead you to great goodness and hope.

Hi,
Well, that is a nice idea, to have a good journey, but is that totally realistic for someone who ts clinically depressed and bipolar, or who has PTSD and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or who has Substance Abuse Disorder, or who has all of the above like me? . .
Peace and love,
Cool Cat. . .

It depends on what you believe. Beliefs, though, are just thoughts and thus are not real. One belief I think I have is that my path was determined or guided from the very beginning. Like there is a divine plan and there are a lot of challenges where the decisions we make are helpful or not. This is just a belief though, and since there is no way to verify it, I come back to it if it is comforting but remain open-minded. Just try to determine what you believe your journey is, and with experience you can revise it or it will solidify. Is there something specific you don't understand?

I love reading these. I have decided to treat myself once a month to a hotel stay. I did this along time ago and it actually worked. I got to relax go for a walk and sip a glass of wine. I figured it can’t hurt and if that doesn’t work I’ll try something else until my journey fits me.
