"Every misfortune, every misfortune and every heartache brings with it the seed of equivalent or greater good." - Napoleon Hill
Do you believe that life must be difficult or that hard times are needed to teach us valuable lessons? Think carefully about your answer, because it will show whether your suffering and pain can become a door leading to self-discovery. We rarely get satisfaction when we work within our comfort zone, as our greatest achievements come when we explore new horizons.
We, people, love comfort and will do everything necessary to maintain a balance in our lives, because safety is fundamental to our survival. That encroaches on our safety and well-being is a threat and can cause anxiety, anxiety and tension.That is why people prefer to stay in their comfort zone, because who wants to experience these negative emotional states? However, there are those who do precisely this (for example, fur seals or special air service units): they put themselves in uncompromising situations to get used to the harsh conditions of warfare. At home, our life is not as destructive as in the war zone, where soldiers of these elite units are conducting operations. We still have anxiety in everyday situations, whether at work, driving a car or in our relationship. Have you ever been in a situation where the slightest event caused emotional discontent? These things are due to over-stimulation through external stress factors. Each person interprets stress in a different way.
When difficulties arise, they may seem to us an avalanche that rushes at us with great speed. Nevertheless, we learn the most important lessons in life in difficult times, because they reveal to us the depths of our strength. This is what Buddhist nun Pema Hodron has in mindwhen he writes in the book “When the world falls apart: heart advice in difficult times” about the need to accept problems, because they lead to the attainment of great power and healing: “Situations when the world collapses are a kind of test, as well as healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that nothing is really solved. Everything is built, and then falls apart again. And so in a circle. Healing occurs because you allow all this to be: grief, relief, unhappiness, joy. ”
We can control our reaction to difficult moments.
“The stone cannot be polished without friction. One cannot cultivate without testing. ” - Chinese proverb
I remember that the most difficult period in my life was the loss of my father due to illness; I was then over twenty years old. In the months and years that followed, I was desperate because I did not know how to deal with the grief that consumed me. I wanted to run away from him. Nevertheless, I learned to cope with it little by little, and gradually my suffering and pain diminished.There have been occasions when I thought that this was the last sorrow in my life, but later I encountered even more sadness. It seemed to me that everything is repeated. Confronting desperate emotions such as longing is a battle: you confront the enemy while you are strong, but it is important to step back, because the next wave of emotions will sweep when you least expect it.
Have you ever faced tragedies in your life, be it the loss of a loved one or something else? How did you handle it? Many of those who turned to me for help tried to escape from the pain. This is unwise, because emotions have a tendency to return in the form of a huge avalanche. Difficulties teach us to appreciate what really matters, no matter why they occur, or the meaning that they carry. We come to realize the fragility of life and what is important for us when we feel anguish and despair. After losing my father, I realized that my family, healing and compassion for myself were important components, and I tried to surround myself with them. Although we cannot control what happens to us, we are able to choose our reaction to difficulties.
In the most difficult times, it may seem to us that we will not cope with a wave of grief and despair. The point is to take every day and not look far into the future. We must learn to let go and believe that we will overcome the pain. I affirm that life is an interaction of duality mixed in a sea of contrast. We can experience happiness and joy at one moment, and experience difficulties at another. Suddenly, we are in the grip of despair. This scenario is real for many people, and although at first they suffer, they eventually realize that it is impossible to live this way, and find a way out of the impasse.
Yes, we have a choice, although I believe that we must experience contrasting conditions in order to learn the necessary lessons. It is not the events themselves that break us, because we have been given the wisdom to overcome almost everything. As the French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said: “We are not human beings with spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings with human experience. ” Whatever happens to us, we will cope, because we are endless souls who travel through life, gaining human experience.
