There's very little logic in our choices and decisions if our basic needs are unmet

Day 52/366 days Towards Self-Mastery. Mood: content


Our choices and decisions have to conform to what feels safe to us, and/or what meets a fundamental need.


Having read through some of the research and with my own experiences and knowledge behind me, I can comfortably say that the driving force behind decisions and choices is not well known.


What I can also say, is that if something feels unsafe to us we will make decisions and choices to move away from it if we can. That being said, there are certainly syndromes and conditioning of our brain and nervous system that prevents us from doing just that. Stockholm syndrome would be one example. The aligning with a captor during captivity is no doubt, a move to feel safe in an unsafe environment.
