Issues are lessons

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.

  1. I agree with you. I see issues as lessons and that everything happens for a reason. We learn from out experiences in life.

    More people should think this was instead of feeling like they are always dumped on by life. The ‘why me’ is just a pity call.

  2. I’ve wasted so much of my life getting mired in my issues which is truly a sad thing! My biggest resentment has been watching others do the worst things and have the best things happen to them. Most of the lessons I’ve learned have been what NOT to do in life!

    I’m trying very hard to come to terms with where I’m at in my life now and not dwell on all the things I should have done in the past. It feels like I blinked and half of my life is gone!

    People perplex me when they have everything they could ever want and still complain about their life! My issues have crippled me mentally which most people can’t comprehend, but I’m fighting as hard as I can to overcome them so that I can finally enjoy being a human being!

    1. Thanks Randy. I hear ya! and understand why you would resent watching others do the worst things and have what seems good things happen to them! I’m not sure how much of that really happens in reality though in the longer term. I tend to think any bad deed catches up with us sooner or later.

      As far as your issues are concerned, I hope you continue to overcome yours so that you can enjoy more of your life.
