None of us have or will emerge unscathed from what life has to throw at us. Life is one big gigantic series of challenges over and over again. And added to that we get to face many of the same challenges until we learn the lesson and move on. If you need help – please ask for it. Sometimes coffee with a friend is enough and other times we need someone that can offer professional help. But you don’t need to stay in that place of suffering.
We all recover from “life strikes” at different speeds and in different ways. Let’s respect each other’s suffering and know that it is different for all of us. Some people can shake things off quickly and other people take longer.
Each time we recover from something we gain strength, courage and resilience which helps us for the next time. We’ve earned our suffering. We have been worthy of it.
