Most of us run from the idea that you should feel your pain but in order to grow its one of the first things you have to do. Whether it’s a loss of a love one, an ending of a relationship, or facing a set back; Embracing your pain is about transforming it into strength. Think of it this way, to deny it and put it off will slowly eat away at you. But to face it and sit with it, to nurture it, to let it overcome you is to release it so that it may become the strength to keep pushing forward. So don’t be afraid to feel your pain.
Isn’t it frustrating when something doesn’t work out. It seems like the very fact that “it” didn’t, is proof that you shouldn’t be doing it. In an instant doubt comes rushing in and you instantly become paralyzed, questioning your very existence, purpose and whether “it’s” all worth it.
I had to be honest as to why “it” may not have worked out. Have I been giving my 100%? No. I have my list of excuses but I can admit they aren’t valid. I’ve felt like I’ve been stuck in limbo but “It” not working out is the kick in the ass I needed.
There is this quote by Joel Osteen that says, “God isn’t moved by our cries, he’s moved by our actions.” I don’t know about you but I know I have been laid up crying about everything rather than taking action and making the necessary improvements in my life.
When “it” doesn’t work out, it’s important to take time to reflect, adjust and most importantly, do. No matter what though, you can’t let it discourage you. Maybe reading a book will help guide you on your emotional journey or pursuing a hobby or starting something… but just do it. No more complainng. Take baby steps to pursue your dreams; Because it is undeniably worth it.
