Early morning Travellers,
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but it drives me nuts when people say, “If I knew then, what I know now…I could go back and make a better choice.” I feel like that statement really belies the essence of how we make our decisions. We do the best we can do with where we are and what we know.
Also, I think we make our choices from a place I like to call our “you-ness” that is who we are inside our soul/energy/whatever part of Freud’s model of the psyche that you feel works to describe that part of you. And that you-ness is also shaped by all the experiences we’ve had in our life, how we let those mold us and our actions.
