Recently, Dr. Robin found out her mother was battling a bad cold but was continuing to go about her regular chores and errands at the risk of potentially worsening her condition. Dr. Robin says we all do things at times that are unwise or against our better judgment. The question is, why?
Have you ever caught yourself running on autopilot, mindlessly performing tasks that are draining your energy or even your spirit? Have you ever gone to a party that you didn't want to attend because you feel obligated? Do you maintain relationships that you know aren't the best for you out of guilt or fear?
Dr. Robin urges us to take a closer look at the real intentions and motivation behind all our actions. If we don't, we risk ending up in situations we might not have bargained for, from a loveless marriage to a dead-end job. "What our intentions really are are what drive the outcomes we end up with," she says.
