Sometimes it’s not easy to remember that everything you’ve been through is preparing you for something else. It reminds me of elementary school, the teachers always saying pay attention, one day you’ll need to know how to do this. It could be years before you actaully use that piece of information, but when ever it does come up- you’re really glad you knew what you needed too in the moment.
The same goes for people in your life. Everyone you meet , you are meant to meet. For whatever reason you both were meant to cross each other’s paths. Whether it’s a good experience or not, you take something from everyone that comes along in your life, just as much as you would any other piece of information.
Everyone and Everything is a Lesson & and Blessing. It may not seem like that in the moment but it’s true.
My situation right now is difficult, and it has been a struggle for several months. Going through divorce and restraining order proceedings I’ve seen more court documents than I would like. It’s been stressful and emotionally draining. While nothing about it is easy, there’s a lot I’ve taken out of all this so far including, more patience, more understanding, my own strength, acceptance , and courage are just a few. It hasn’t been easy at all, but it’s taught me a great deal in which I’m grateful for. It’s not easy to see or even feel that in the moment it’s happening, a challenge for all of us to master, but if you can see the good , you’ve learned something.
Without the difficult times , we don’t grow much at all.
It’s through these challenges that we learn, it won’t always be pretty, the people may not be nice at all , but we have a chance to grow from it all. As long as we are accepting in what is happening and not turn away from challenges, we have the chance to grow and learn from the experiences we take on through our lives.
Is there any challenge you’ve faced yourself that taught you a lesson used later on in life?
