Capacity for growth
Imagine a life without misery, without suffering, without challenges, without any great worry. Imagine we are all happy, we get what we want always, we satisfy ourselves and everything works out for all of us.
Now, this “perfection” obviously takes away the mystery, the hidden lessons, the capacity to learn and come up with our own ideas and strengths to find solutions and ways to understand life.
If everything is happiness then there is no need for struggle. But the only capacity for growth is in the struggle. I lost people I loved and suffered much in my life, and so I gained the capacity to learn wisdom and strength. If I never go through suffering then I remain dull and weak, unwise and without experience.
Welcome the chance to grow
It is really difficult, to lose people you love, to see your life not working out, to feel like you are trapped in your own story. But that is also where the possibility to gain strength, wisdom, and grow as a better person hides. I personally have learned not to see life as punishment or as something I should experience in fright.
I have learned, and it took many years, that life is made of choices. As a grown up, each choice I make, whatever it is, hides a lesson I must discover. Discovering the lesson, accepting the lesson, and welcoming the lesson is only up to me–and always through patience.
