Generally it is pretty easy for me to tell what is right or not for me. Simple process, if it makes me feel good then it works for me, and not if not.
What do you do when your 'emotional compass' of what you want simply spins? (Or if your compass says that more than one juxtaposed conditions are 'right'?)
I think your compass is doing fine but you avoid looking at it I believe...which is fine too. Because often it is best to just focus on other positive things instead of digging into all the negative stuff we accumulated our whole life.
But don't assume that your compass isn't working if you don't want to look at it.
Sounds to me as if you neutralized some beliefs that were bothering you before. But you still know that there is something negative if you would dig a little bit deeper. But at the same time you fear the possibility to fear...if you listen to the song.
Because otherwise you wouldn't assume that you needed courage to listen to a song, which is just a string of acoustic vibrations that can do no harm to anybody. You would just listen to it and feel neutral or good such as other people who listen to the very same song.
Or you wouldn't even bother that there was a song some time ago that felt negative. You would think of other mundane things such "Is eating macaroni and cheese bad for me?" :).
Maybe your interpretation of your compass is not quite accurate here. If you feel confused, it usually means you have two conflicting beliefs about something. One is a good feeling one and the other is a bad feeling one. Neutralize the bad feeling one, and you should just feel clear and good.
