4 tips to embrace challenging situations
Updated: Jun 16, 2021
Sometimes you see roses and colors and you may think that’s all there is but behind that there’s also tears and struggles that have been battled. Don’t be mistaken and don’t forget that we are all in this human experience together. The more we live the more we get opportunities to learn and relearn.
There are times in which we feel completely challenged and discouraged in spite of all the blessings that we have and we have no idea why. But the key is to embrace the what for?
Here are 4 tips on how to do that;
1. Accept life for what is, allow yourself to feel the anger, the frustration and even cursing or expressing the words you feel just how you feel them..
2. Surrender into what is - i.e. crying and asking for support
3. Letting go and releasing - stop doing the things that are feeding into your current unpleasant experience, like do less and be more, for instance.
4. Opening yourself up to receive greater and better. For instance, listen to music that fulfills your soul, ask for what you need and want like a hug, words of encouragement, etc.
Feeling this way and going through these kind of experiences is an intrinsic part of our journey to happiness. And last but not least because we live in a society that rewards doing and moving but not so much being. Hence, we have so many people experiencing high levels of anxiety around the world because we are used to repress our feelings and especially the most uncomfortable ones which are the ones that give us the greatest potential for inner growth.
So, my wish is that the next time you feel like crap you remember you are not alone and that there is always a path to get out of what you may perceive as pure darkness. That darkness can also show you the light at the end of the tunnel.
