Deep sighs on crossroads

What do you do when you’re at crossroads?

How do you move forward?

How do you pretend that the path you choose is meant for you?

Where do you know the route you choose will lead you to?

If you don’t believe in destinations, I am curious about how you are where you are.

It took definite decisions and choices between more than one option

So then, how do you know?

Some say, “not how long, but how well”

Do you really believe this?

If you do, why not ditch maps!

So, it means we intrinsically hate dilemmas.

We would rather have clarity of purpose and clearly defined destinies or destinations with well expounded pathways

Albeit, this is almost never the case. A situation where all the variables are outlined, known and clear.
So, what do one do?

Please don’t say algebra.😏
I know its limitations sometimes, the assumptions that you have a well thought out problem and ultimately a known destination can be troubling.
Especially when there’s no said metaphorical map, all we have an incline of is the similitude of where we would like to be.

Need I say that the crossroads I speak of are those decisions that could be life altering?
So, what do we do?

I leave this time again with no answers but more questions that I can answer. I may subscribe to the ideology of going to the all-knowing Father, but that may not be enough for you, so I leave you with questions. How do you deal with crossroads?

Perhaps, you might help me and others who are curious about what can help define life purpose or destinies…

Interesting read.

I think it has a lot to do with our inner compass. Certain decisions require just your gut witness and this usually aligns with what the father tells you while some decisions overwhelm you and your guts so you just have to depend on the father for directions.

In the end, every decision is one step of a journey. The worst decision to make is to not make a decision. Sometimes it is better to make mistakes and correct them than to not try at all.
