Often times we wonder why are we in the current situation, especially if it is a trying situation and one may think “What did I do to deserve this” or “This is hard” or “I don’t deserve to be in this situation”.
Take a couple of moments to verbalize the situation and maybe even write it down to define it. Then look at the situation as if you are looking at someone else’s life and ask yourself, how can I support this person and this situation in a loving and caring manner. Mind you, this takes some practice.
A couple of things are happening here
- You are defining the situation to give it a shape and scope…you are sizing the situation and giving a dimension like sizing up a box before lifting it;
- You now have a purpose to support it and make it better, like a mother supports her child when the child calls out. She does not stop to ask what the child has done to get into the situation; she runs to assist the child
The situation has come to you because you and only you have the means to resolve it. There is a story about a young wizard who is told that he does not choose his wand, his wand chooses him. Likewise, these situations that come choose us because we have the capacity to resolve them.
Awaken that courage and the capacity to resolve the situation.
You got this!
