How do you know when it’s time to quit a relationship, a job, or anything else in your life? We often don’t know the right decision because the answer is obscured by emotions such as fear, guilt, worry or anxiety. Many of us actually do know the right decision deep down – we have an inner knowing – but we can ignore that feeling or not be in touch with it at all because of the emotions clouding the way. Sometimes there is a part of us that doesn’t want to know the answer because of the implications that come with it. We are afraid of the answer, so we pretend it’s not there at all. Often professional help is needed to enable clarity. One thing you could try on your own is to imagine your life in the future – say in two, five or ten year’s time. Explore in your mind where you would be if you took each option and more importantly, how you would be feeling. Which option seems to have the least happiness attached to it? Its only when you clear the emotion around a situation that you create a clear head and a clear heart. From that space the way forward is nearly always obvious.
