“I’ve heard it before.” Of course you have. Who hasn’t?
Like many, my goal isn’t to reinvent the wheel. My goal is to share things in a way that make the message I’m trying to share click with people. And other times, it’s just to remind people of something they already know simply because it’s been helpful to me and I feel like sharing it.
So yeah, you’ve probably heard it before. And one of these days someone will eventually say it in a way that actually makes it meaningful to you. Because if it was meaningful to you, you likely wouldn’t mind hearing it again.
Challenges in life are inevitable. And things don’t always go the way we want them to. But we can reduce the negative impact that challenging experiences have on us by remaining focused on what is within our power to change and being open to the lessons that life has to teach us.
So many things in life come and go in waves. Knowing this can be particularly useful when dealing with difficult times. By recognizing that, in many cases, all you need to do is ride out a challenging time before things will begin to get better can make it easier to bear.
