There is always a way through things. Sometimes it is hard for us to see that, or believe it, which is why it is wonderful to have someone else you are connected to in such a way that you can share your thoughts as you work through things. That someone who will help you explore, allow you the complete range of emotions the situation demands, without holding you to those emotions or the words spoken when you are in the midst of a trial, is pretty priceless. Some of us are lucky enough to have people like that in our life.
We don’t always need people to give us answers, but sometimes their different perspective on a situation, can be invaluable.
I think sometimes people assume because I accept things that I am a coward, or not willing to take things on, or even that I will not do what I have said I would do. What they think is irrelevant. I know that I can face things and deal with them and survive. I am willing to do that even when the truth of a situation is painful and shows me to be in the wrong. By the same token I believe in consequences. We can lie our way through anything and pretend to everyone, including ourselves, that our motives are not what they really are. But the truth comes out. It is called karma. Karma is not a factor when we deal with the experience and learn from it. It only comes into play when we fail to do that. So sometimes I focus on me and let other people walk to the path that leads to their karma. They may think they have won, lied effectively, played a better hand, gotten away with it . . . but the only person they have cheated/hurt . . . is themselves and their pain when everything circles around again, is not pleasant.
I don’t like to dwell on the problem for any other reason than to find the solution. I think we waste too much time worrying about and complaining about the problems we have. It is almost as if we imagine that we can somehow protest the event from being reality. To me, accepting the situation and getting on with dealing with it are much more productive.
I am always moving forward.
