A mindset for life's struggles

Wisdom Wednesday

Today’s quote is by a Buddhist nun, Pema Chödrön.

“Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.”

If you have ever encountered a similar situation multiple times in your life, you have experienced what Pema Chödrön is talking about.

Sometimes we wonder why something happens to us. We make the same mistakes,  choose the wrong relationships, have a hard time keeping a job, get sick on a regular basis, or just seem to be stuck. This is because we still have not learned what that situation is trying to teach us.

Maybe we need to learn to stand up for ourselves, set limits, rest, understand that we are good enough, or that we need to abandon our bad habits. Until we understand and start to make changes, the situation will pop up in our lives over and over again.

What kind of situations do you keep encountering in your life? What is that situation trying to teach you? What could you change in order to prevent that from happening again?

Take care and keep going, my friends!
