When it comes to facing struggles in life, it is never easy, especially at first; but as you pursue inner growth and gain more self-awareness and love, you are able to get through these tough times with less hardship. However, the key to achieving this for yourself also involves knowing yourself to the point of realizing your role in the struggles you face.
Since the world you live in is seen through your eyes, it is only normal that the events that take place create a specific reaction within you; or better yet, it is the perspective you hold that gives complete shape to these events; particularly your emotional “shape.”
The way you feel about something that happens has a lot to do with how you see the world, the things that happen, all the external inputs and situations that arise. When you know yourself, and find your reasons for feeling how you do, thinking how you do, and just being you; that already gives you a good idea of why the struggle you’re facing is making you feel a certain way. The next step is recognizing the judgement you’re applying to the situation or person that has brought about the struggle and removing the two.
Finally, you can look to the struggle itself and understand why it is causing discomfort, as well as what solutions you have to resolve the struggle from within. Overcoming the feeling of battle is what will move you from inner conflict to inner growth, and to a positive resolution for the event that you’re going through.
Your support system can help immensely when you’re going through struggle, but in the end only you can decide if you want to move forward; and if you can’t, you can also choose that you accept this about yourself. By accepting who you are and how you feel about something is also inner growth because it’s an act of love towards you instead of an act of judgement (an act of judgement that would weigh you down and add to that emotional turmoil).
Having a 360-degree view of you and your perception of all that comes your way is what will determine the level of struggle you go through, as well as the solutions you opt to implement so that you may move forward in a positive way for your life and inner harmony.
