There are times in our lives when we are massively out of balance, our ability to clearly see both sides of a conflict is severely compromised. Your own inner peace is suffering, and it fills your life with painful uncertainty.
Things have been insane in the past few months, and likely painful. You have been lost in trying to see the balance in things.
You are trying to help others with a problem that affects you. You were too close, and the decision reached was out of balance.
Things are in tumult, and you aren’t able to get a clear vision of your situation. It’s time to take a step back, take a deep breath.
Do some serious assessment of what’s going on and your choices within it. You are in danger of making a bad decision for all the wrong reasons, slow down.
A time of chaos is coming, things will be thrown out of balance, and it will feel like everything is out of your control. At this time all you can do is watch your steps, watch where you’re going.
Find the path to avoid this situation. If there is a conflict going on, know that you aren’t able to see both sides, sit them down, or the end result will be bad for everyone involved.
