Who Are You? Ask Yourself “Why?” to Take Back Control

In asking yourself yesterday’s questions and answering them you may have bumped up against psychic or emotional wounds that are still sore. You may have discovered that you’ve stopped in one area of your life because of an unfairness or injustice. Perhaps you tried working with forgiveness to move past it but it just isn’t working.

You may have gotten stuck at the last question: “What are you going to do about it?” You just don’t have a clue what to do to help yourself.

My recommendation is to not worry about forgiveness or apologies or anyone admitting guilt or taking the blame. Relying on others so that you can move forward may not always be the best tactic. Instead, ask yourself “Why?” to discover what’s at the core of the wound–is it disrespect, is it that you feel invisible? Does it make you feel that you’re not good enough?

When you keep asking yourself ‘why’, you become clearer on what the issue really is. This then helps you figure out what YOU can do about it. You don’t have to turn to anyone else to heal that wound or fill that hole. You aren’t dependent upon someone “owning up” and then apologizing.

Asking yourself “why” and then “what am I going to do about it’ puts the control squarely in your hands, which is exactly where it needs to be–especially if you want to move forward into your soul-prospering life.

You can do it!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
