Why we all Make “Bad” Choices…Even When we “Know Better”

Despite what we may logically know we should or shouldn’t do, or how we may feel about what we do, our nervous system is really just trying to keep us alive and well.  If our nervous system thinks that we’re unsafe – whether this is factually accurate or not – we’re going to struggle to control our behavior.  All of our behaviors serve some function to us, and though these behaviors are often misguided, their intentions are good.
