Today’s card reminds me that I need to be actively engaged in my own emotional choices. I must remember that what I feel is my own responsibility. I cannot allow my emotional choices to be made by others.
I mean that I cannot say, “Oh I did that horrible thing because I was mad at so-and-so.”
I mean that I cannot say, “I was speeding because X told me I had to hurry.”
I can say, “I was hurting when I did that horrible thing” or “I was speeding because I thought it was urgent that I get there.”
By taking the “other” out of my actions, I own what I do. I was thinking about this on my morning walk with the dogs. I released one emotional burden yesterday. It hurt, y’all. It hurt to release it. Doesn’t feel much better today to be honest.
But? I know it was the right thing for me. I hope it was the right thing for the other person.
I had to make an emotional choice where I put myself first. I had to be reminded by someone who loves me that I was trying to put blame where it didn’t belong once I’d done that releasing.
My reaction to that reminder was…poor, to say the least. 😀 I reread what they said this morning and got more of what they meant. But last night? HOOO BOY! I did not want to hear what they said. AT ALL.
So what about you? Do you have any impending emotional choices? See if you can make them from your heart-centered, self-focused place. See if you can not say, “If X hadn’t done X, I wouldn’t have to do this.”
As my dear One pointed out, it’s in the scorpion’s nature.
