When our behavior (what we actually do) doesn’t match up with our values (what’s important to us) it feels icky.
Icky = agitation, sadness, confusion, anger, anxiety, stress or a number of other unpleasant feelings.
The more plagued you are by icky feelings around a certain issue, the wider the gap between your values and actions.
Don’t know what your values are? The good news is that feelings always point the way home.
