The sign on the right may be representative of how many mixed signals we receive on a daily basis. I think about how hard it is to trust your instincts sometimes when you know something is right, but risky. For example, when do you trust someone? How do you decide to avoid temptation for food, alcohol, work that is destructive for you?
How do you know when you’ve reached a dead end road in your life?
Here are some points to consider.
- Is there respect? If there is a lack of respect, it may be time to move on. The relationship, job or you way of coping may be a place NOT to enter.
- Are your goals and values compatible? Mismatched goals may mean you need to be more open and improve communication to get back on track, or ultimately a sign that you are headed in different directions.
- Do you get bored? When boredom reigns, you may not be challenged, you need more meaning or purpose in life, or you may have given up.
