Whenever we toughen up to get through difficult experiences, it is as if we prolong the inevitable need to feel it to heal it. How do we find the courage and the heart space to feel all the feels when it seems like another relentless headache, bellyache, broken-hearted moment after another?
- we trust ourselves to no longer abandon ourselves
- we focus on our own hula hoop and let go of comparing our suffering to others (the only person we can legitimately compare ourselves to is ourself left over from yesterday)
- we repair our part of whatever nightmare is happening
- we allow faith to hold us in a web of grace and surrender
We dwell in the Realm of Resilience
Resilience ordinary definition:
the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
Resilience extraordinary definition:
the capacity to transform hurt into opportunity; tenderness.
