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 tend to work on the assumption that issues are obstacles, challenges and problems that we initiate ourselves. If you were to 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, but one that is easily remedied with a different attitude and perception from us. I never used my physical difficulties as an excuse to dwell. They were there for a reason, years on and I have come to understand why.
We can learn so much by the cards we’re dealt. The truth is we don’t. We must look for the lessons, to understand their reasoning.
