I believe the issues we deal with are our lessons and that if we were to stand back, we’d see and understand how we could put those issues right.
I work on the assumption that issues are obstacles, challenges and problems that we initiate ourselves. If you work on your understanding that everything happens for a reason, issues are lessons and once you learn how to understand those lessons, you’ll find the answer that solves the issue.
Instead, we get caught up in internal dialogue and begin to ask why it always happens to us. The worst part of any scenario is the internal dialogue that comes with it that and self-pity. Unfortunately, we will spend too much time dwelling on our issues, instead of trying to find out how we can best address those issues.
A human failing I feel, but one that is easily remedied with a different perception. I never used my Cerebral Palsy as an excuse to dwell on the fact that I had Cerebral Palsy or that I was poor badly done to. My Cerebral Palsy was there for a reason; years on, I have come to understand why. The CP Diary was that reason. We can learn so much by what we have to deal with. The sad reality is that we don’t.
We must learn to look for the lesson to understand its reasoning. We usually get there in the end.
