We learn our lessons in the most difficult of times and difficult times are a necessary part of spiritual and emotional growth. It is only through challenging times that we will learn how to become adept at dealing with and working through our lives.
I come back to resilience, because the more resilient we are, the more staying power we will have to get through difficult times. Although resilience can help us bounce back, resilience can’t give us a life without stress. Instead, it will help us focus, so that we can learn how to equate what we see, understand and deal with.
It is through understanding that we learn our biggest lessons, helping us to create new opportunities. Through opportunities we will gain new thinking. Through new thinking, we will acquire more knowledge and through more knowledge, we will learn how to manage our stress.
When we learn how to manage our stress, we will become more adept at changing our perceptions on stress. With our changing perceptions we will learn our lessons, even in difficult times. Lessons are necessary for spiritual and emotional growth.
