In this lifetime, you will experience many things I would love to be able to protect you from. Burdens that, if given a choice, I would willingly and lovingly carry for you if I could. Thankfully, I can’t, because my protection would make you absolutely vulnerable to anything. If I could make your life easy for you, you would end up with a hard life.
Please know and understand that our deepest work, our most crucial growth, is often rooted in pain. This is not necessarily a bad thing. See yourself as a lobster who literally needs to break out of its old shell in order to grow into its new self. Going through the pain with all you have will give you the kind of power that can only be accessed by rising above the self that feared the pain.
I know you can handle anything that comes your way. If not, I firmly believe you would not have to experience it. Usually, you will find out that there will be something better waiting for you on the other side. The loved one who dumps you will make room for someone better. The job you won’t get, even though you were the most qualified to do it, will make room for a purpose you will discover soon after. Or twenty years later. The car crash will point you into a better direction then where your life was going. The heartbreak will help you feel more deeply. The loss will show you how much you really have. The big things crashing down on you will show you it was all about the little things anyway.
Life is for living, my darling. And that can only be done by experiencing everything it throws your way. The good, the bad, and the ugly. True beauty lies in living through all of it. True bliss lies in loving all of it. True wisdom lies in learning from all of it. And we learn most from the things we’d rather not learn.
I cannot do it for you, but I will be there with you. I will cheer you on, hold your hand, open my arms, hold the door, and have your back. Always.
