How To Be Your Own Best Hero!
We all know that life is tough and that pain and suffering are inevitable. What we do when those uncomfortable feelings arise is what separates the weak from the strong and the "talkers" from the "doers." Most people avoid, resist, or numb themselves in a myriad of creative and self-destructive ways in order to not FEEL what's really going on inside them.
However, to truly heal and "get over it" while moving in the right direction, you gotta sit with it , deal with it, and own your experience. This makes you your very own and greatest hero!
When you make a conscious decision to sit with any unpleasant feelings and to almost sink into the pain or simply hold it your hand as though it were a glass of water, you'll create the space for true "choice" and deep "insight" to emerge. Running away from pain postpones pain, or "embracing" pain and the uncomfortable almost sounds like you must "like" what you're going through.
You don't have to like it or enjoy the big lesson that you're learning, simply acknowledge it, hold it, and be with it until it dissipates. You'll find that the perspective gained and the time spent are priceless! And wherever you go after that painful ordeal, will be exactly where you were meant to be.
