In my last post I mentioned some things I want to expand a bit on.
I believe that attempts to quickly end suffering (or just go numb for a while because the pain is so bad) often leads to addictions and temporary solutions, both of which only lead to prolonging suffering. I find it interesting that whether talking about pain, fear, grief, shame, or other growth areas, the way out is often through.
And the “knowing” I alluded to in my earlier post, is the knowing much more about myself, the confidence that comes from knowing I have the proven ability to survive such experiences and emerge stronger on the other side, and the knowing as to how much better life is once I’ve made it to the other side of the growth experience.
I love the imagery and message of a saying I keep close to my heart, that paraphrased goes something like: “We’re here to help walk each other home.” Thank you for being there for me on my long–yet also ever-so-short–walk home. May you experience the gifts from me that I’ve received from you along the way.
