Ever feel like life is unfair?
Are there too many problems clawing for your attention?
You’re not the only one.
At times it feels like too much to bear.
But there’s a better way to deal with the difficulties of life.
The answer lies not in running away, but turning to face life fully.
Adversity is synonymous with difficulty and misfortune.
And we’ve been taught to avoid difficulty at all cost.
But without difficulty, without adversity, there is no growth. No progress. No life. No fulfillment.
Adversity is the force that shapes you for what’s to come.
It’s nothing more than how you view an event in your life. Adversity teaches you to let go of what you think is happening. It pushes you to stay in the present moment.
Adversity seems like an obstacle between you and your dreams. But it’s more like a friend pointing to the the stepping stones along the stream.
Accept the difficulties of life, and life becomes less difficult, because when you face the perceived problems in your life, you become larger than them.
The problem isn’t adversity, but how you relate to it.
When adversity comes knocking on your door, open up, and say hi. It has something to teach you. Somewhere to push you.
Instead of seeing adversity as the enemy, look at what you’re being taught.
Coping with adversity doesn’t mean you eliminate the flinch of a negative event.
It means letting go of the negative reactions.
Lastly, to be more accommodative of adversity, we should know: “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.”
May God help us in this journey.
