“Do not run from yourself. If you feel things deeply, if the world has weathered you, if you are going through something that is uncomfortable or painful, or hard - you often have to decide between allowing yourself to dive into those emotions, or allowing yourself to numb them. And, a lot of human beings choose to numb their experience of the world. A lot of human beings tell themselves that it is a too much, that is all too inconvenient, to deal with the depth of their circumstance. And it is often not their fault. In a world that has given us so many ways to kill our pain through television, or prescriptions, or the sensationalizing of being cool and favorable over being inquisitive, and authentic, it is almost a subconscious thing we do. We try to protect ourselves from pain, but if I have learned one thing this year, it is that pain demands to be felt. It will show up in other ways if we do not deal with it.
Meditate. Get to know your mind, your heart, your soul. Trace your fingers over your wounds. Get to know the parts of yourself that you have hidden from the light. Heal yourself from the inside."
Not to glorify pain but I've come to realise that there is beauty in it and where we experience the most growth. Watching Gary Vee made me realise if we can get excited about our failures (as opportunities for immense growth!), we can then face setbacks with such fight! It also seems like the people who struggle the most turn out to be the most interesting people! Don't you agree?!?
