Read This When You Find Yourself At A Crossroads

Crossroads are a part of life’s journey. They are the life-changing and often scariest kinds of roads you could come across. It’s no surprise that we idle on them the way we do or overthink the decisions we made and the roads we took.

But remember this: You are not alone on these roads, and there is no right or wrong way. Whatever road you take, whatever decision you decide on, let your intuition guide you. You have natural intuition within you, a natural state of yourself that knows what’s best for you. That gut feeling you get when you know something is wrong or someone is not good for you, that’s your intuition.

Once you allow it to guide you, you realize that no matter what road you take or what decision you make, it is one that comes from a place that holds your highest intentions. Crossroads are also life’s way of guiding us towards one focused direction and channeling whatever has brought us there to a single road. In life, we need to make decisions so that we can grow and let go of situations or places that don’t contribute to our overall happiness anymore.

I found myself at a crossroads recently, and I had to decide to either let go of a toxic friendship or give it more time to become healthier and to work harder on it. It’s never easy letting go of people, but sometimes it’s not about easy, it’s about what is best for you. My intuition guided me and allowed me to let go of the friendship without feeling guilty because I was guided by a place that holds my highest intentions.

When you’re at a crossroads, remember to trust your natural state of intuition to guide you on your journey.
