Juggling between following our inner compass and the outer compass

Have you ever experienced inner conflict from doing something that would make others happy, but at the expense of our own principles and happiness?

So how can we process that emotion, and make a decision that we can be at peace with?

Decision making can depend on whether we want outer harmony or inner harmony.

It would be great if we can have both, but at times, we may have to choose one over the other, and then be at peace with that. This will require self awareness, acceptance, emotional literacy and emotional processing.

To achieve outer harmony, follow the values, feelings, or thinking of others.

To achieve inner harmony, follow your inner principles, feelings or values.

Juggling between these two domains is definitely no walk in the park, but it’s possible with a little bit of practice.
