Inner balance emulates calm, ease, freedom, harmony, focus, clarity, knowing, vitality, resiliency, wholeness, wellness, satisfaction, happiness, excitement, inspiration, contentment, fulfillment, love, trust and self-worth laced with exquisite.
But, that does not imply that we will stay 24/7 in that state of inner balance.
Those seemingly opposing feelings of inner balance such as fear, being anxious, dissatisfaction in life, feeling of lack, etc. which we consider unnecessary and try to shoo off, are apparently the one who ushers us to the threshold of inner balance, only if processed well and not rejected.
Being aware of what’s in our mind (like catching ourselves swamp in thinking about the past or the future and not conscious enough about the moment) leverages us to be genuinely sure of ourselves, which pacifies our inner-chatter to listen to dissents, look for points of agreement and compromise to get things done.
If our self-worth is also not tied up with people liking us, we might turn their criticism to learning opportunity.
