Think a Simple Preference Is No Big Deal? Beware! “Likes” and “Dislikes” Can Cause Stress, Problems, and Unhappiness

The Mind Loops Blog – May 2022

We think our simples likes and dislikes aren’t that big a deal. But oh, how sneaky the mind can be! These little buggers can cause relationship conflicts, self doubt, work issues, depression, and a deadened quality to life.

IN THIS VIDEO I describe how this occurs… my own hassles with preferences… and why SOFTENING them can create so much more joy, peace, fun, pleasure… and LESS STRESS in your life.

As I’ve heard it said…

“The mind is like a parachute; it works best when it’s OPEN.”

Here’s to enjoying MORE of life!

  2. Gail, thank you for your exuberant comment! Glad you’re observing your preferences. I continue to do so… They can be sneaky – AND fascinating to observe. Our minds/behaviors are so complex! Sending much warmth your way!
