Is it possible that we are so conditioned to our daily lives that we opt in to the idea that we have no control at all?
Emotions are not attached to you.
What you think about, creates the feeling you are feeling.
The emotion you are feeling then continues the thought you are thinking.
Slightly unfair circular pattern to put yourself in.
We end up staying in the same circumstances of feeling stuck, hating our jobs, wanting more, because we have been addicted to the emotional state they produce and our own brain causes chemicals, yes chemicals that arouse the state of being.
This is why many of us stay in situations that make us unhappy, feeling as if we have no choice but to suffer.
Choosing to stay stuck in this circular patterned mindset and attitude all because a portion of our brain has been hardwired by our repeated thoughts and reactions.
So again, every thought produces a chemical that is matched by a feeling in your body.
