How do some people rise above circumstances ranging from frustrating to dismal?
I can’t speak to other people’s inner thoughts, but I’m guessing they use the two-punch combination I employ when I’m at my lowest.
All we gotta do is accept life for what it is, even if it’s messy, and grow from it. We can work to change our perception of things, but we might find a lot of life’s biggest challenges to be a blessing in disguise.
What are you going through right now and most importantly, what are you learning from your hardships?
Let’s say a girl’s employer fires her and she feels lost, embarrassed, and disappointed in herself. It’s a low moment in her life that she begins to question whether or not she can get back up from.
What can she learn from that experience?
Maybe she’ll learn the position didn’t suit her. It didn’t align with her strengths, which made her termination inevitable.
Maybe it was a blessing in disguise she got fired because now she can spend time figuring out where her talents lie instead of wasting years of her life doing something she wasn’t supposed to do in the first place.
Or let’s say it’s been night after night of her fighting with her other half. She’s sleep deprived, her eyes are red and puffy, and she’s running low on empathy. It’d be so easy for her to call it and say, this isn’t working out, but instead she fights.
She learns to express her feelings before she reaches her boiling point.
She learns to keep her eyes open, be present, and pay attention to her relationship because it truly means the world to her.
The only mistakes that do true harm are the ones we fail to learn from and repeat again.
I know these are only words. In the moment, it will be difficult to think about what we can learn from a situation when we’re seeing red, feel down, and trapped in a prison of circumstance.
But if we at least try to change our perspective for a minute, we’ll be able to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
Every hardship in life we face is really just a blessing in disguise, no matter how overwhelming it may be at the moment. We’re not given this chance to redeem ourselves, change, and grow every day so we better make the most of it while we can.
