Prevention & Avoidance: The Difference
Just what is the difference between avoidance and prevention?
Most often the experience or the person that you wish to avoid, will often appear right in front of your path. Because anything that you're already avoiding is impossible to prevent.
But what does it mean, and how does it make you feel, to spend an insurmountable amount of time doing your very best not to focus on the experience ,person, place or thing, that your actions only end up leading you directly to the very experience or person that you are trying to avoid.
But could it be that the unresolved or emerging issues, between your experiences with the person, place or thing, is going to continually reappear unto you , until you work out, what you need for yourself, or with the other person.
By first determining your own personal reasons for your avoidance, could it be that you're avoiding the experience because it is bad for you or to you, or that the experience feels too good and true that its causing you to fear its goodness and longevity. And if fear is the reason for your avoidance or absence then it will soon become apparent to you that you're willingingly allowing your personal fears to sacrifice your happiness by causing you to avoid the things or people you need. Although, if your primary reason is that the experience or person is negative or bad, then , its best to prevent the continuation of the experience by setting up clear borders or boundaries with protecting your peace so that your personal space can be rightfully honored.
Its also important to keep in mind that anything that you are already avoiding is impossible to prevent. However, you can prevent things from happening further or repeatedly, by setting up boundaries so that you don't have to repeatedly avoid the issues, the person, the place or thing.
