Looking Ahead With Lauren: Why Confusion is Sometimes BS

confusionI can’t tell you how many times in my life I’ve said I felt confused. You may feel confused when learning something new (this is pretty legitimate, but you can always try harder and try learning it a different way), confused about your love life or career, or confused about where you’re going in life. In my last relationship, I admit for the last year or so I was always “feeling confused”. I was confused about whether or not this was the right relationship for me right now. I’ve been confused on what my heart feels for different people. I’ve been confused on what type of career I want to go for.

This is completely normal. If you’ve had these same thoughts and confusions, I assure you that you’re not alone. Yet, after I finally ended my last relationship, I realized some of my confusion was complete BS. I love the quote in this picture: “The most confused we ever get is when we try to convince our heads of something our hearts know is a lie.” – Karen Moning

I wasn’t really confused most of the time, I just didn’t want to believe what my heart was telling me. I wanted to stay in a comfortable and loving relationship even though my heart was telling me it wasn’t for me at this time in my life. Sometimes your heart will tell you things you don’t want to hear. Be brave enough to listen and act. Don’t hide behind the confusion. When your heart speaks to you, take the time to cut through the noise and listen and decide what you want to do to feel better. Sometimes it takes a hard road to eventually feel content.

Have you ever been confused about something you later realized you weren’t that confused after all? Tell me about it!
