How do you know what is important for you?
In many of life's situation I have found myself unable to choose between different options just because I do not know what is important for me. Is what one wants same as what is important for him?
You think about what you want your life to look like at the end ; what you would regret not doing/having/experiencing.
Keeping that vision in the forefront and always comparing what you're doing at this point in your life to make sure it falls in line with that vision.
By doing that consistently, you come up with priorities. And the simple act of knowing and understanding what your life vision is and what your priorities are will help you make all of the little decisions along the way that will enable you reach your goals.
What you want is the same as what is important to you if it falls in line with your ultimate vision.
Nice Question Though. I believe that we have to follow our intuition and choose any direction associated with spiritual or high aims. These aims are often related to what we had in mind before we coming into this world. We need direction in life but that which is within us will give us the best direction. FOLLOW YOUR INNER VOICE, YOUR SPIRIT, YOUR INTUITION and disregard the pain, happiness or even sorrow you might be going through.
end of the day, what matters most is your happiness and to understand the consequence of your choices. You make the choices that you won't regret later or think later, "o i should have this or that". What you should think about is, will this choice make me and my life better overall?
Easily. And no, what you want is not what is important or best for you. You can want a million dollar car, but it is not good if you buy one and owe plenty of money. If you want to see your family this Christmas, but instead it would be better for your relationship with your partner if you remain home and build a stronger relationship after a hard year. You can want a certain job, but it would be better for your family and you if you get a different job. Etc.
Self reflection into the pool of greater understanding will show, that setting priorities helps in the real world. Guard your indivduality closely, because you should develop your own understanding of the alternatives. Only you should decide on what is within the realm of your best interests.
The way I know something is important to me is if it creates an emotional reaction within me...not a hysterical, reactionary sort of thing..but it triggers that part of me that has strong feelings about something particular.
To me what I may 'want' is not necessarily important to me. A 'want' to me can be fleeting.
Something important to me is enduring.
What you need is not always what you want and what you want is not always what you need. It's normal to struggle with that. As you travel through life, you make choices and make mistakes. The key is learning from the mistakes, keeping track of them, not forgetting them so you know what to do and more importantly, what not to do in the future. You'll shape your decision making for the better this way but you must make some bad moves to do so. You can't avoid it. We all deal with it. Nobody's perfect.
you need more than I can offer...............
Really.....................think about this..................YOU are asking me, what is important to YOU!
This is not the time for double speak.............get your stuff together, before you lose it all.
The best advice that I ( in my simple state) can give you.....................is figure out who you are, what you want, and what you will not agree to live with.
Truth is I dont know whats important for me I rely on a higher power for guidance

I feel like I'm losing me. And I don't know who's taking my place. Or how to get myself back. Or if I should even try to hold on to me?
