You’d think I’d know better than this by now but… I have been wrestling like a boss with “It.” I’ve been arguing, screaming, and kicking the snot out of “It.”
Clearly not a fair fight as I’m losing big time. The number of times I’ve called my sister, spoken with my husband, tossed it back and forth with my bestie…. Ridiculous, beyond counting… I’m exhausted!
And then I remembered. I remembered what I tell my clients:
STOP FIGHTING WITH IT.
LISTEN TO IT.
IF IT REFUSES TO LEAVE, THEN THERE IT STILL HAS A MESSAGE FOR YOU.
So, I stopped wrestling, arguing, screaming, and kicking… and took a couple of deep breaths… and listened.
I did the most constructive, productive thing of all: I shut my mouth and opened my ears.
Message indeed. Pretty crystal clear too.
If you have a situation, an emotion, a feeling, an ache or pain that refuses to let go… that refuses to leave… then there is still a message in it for you. Stop the fighting and assume a wide-open-ears-and-heart position. Maintain a perspective of gratitude for this messenger. And get ready to be healed.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
When we view the difficulties that we have less as OBSTACLES and more as OPPORTUNITIES, life starts to make more sense. When our perspective changes from fighting to listening, bad-things look more like God-things.
It’s truly mystical, miraculous even. But so it is.
Our greatest disappointments have the potential to be our deepest healings. Your most difficult situation could very well be your BFF.
