Byron Katie said:
“When you argue with reality,
You will lose but only 100% of the time.”
How often have you thought:
- This shouldn’t be happening.
- I don’t have time for this.
- Bad things shouldn’t happen to good people.
- They did everything right, they shouldn’t have died
- I shouldn’t have gotten (cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, a stroke)
- My spouse should …
- My boss doesn’t understand.
- My co-workers should do more.
- I shouldn’t have been abused.
Byron Katie also said: “Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment.
You don’t have to like it, it’s just easier if you do.”
That all sounds good in theory,
After weathering difficulties, it is easier to take that attitude.
But what about during the difficulties?
What about in small things and big things?
- The unexpected flat tire.
- The meeting that ran long.
- The larger than expected workload.
- The slow driver when you are in a hurry.
- The unexpected sick child.
- The client that didn’t pay you.
“Loving what is”, is something I continually work on for myself.
How about you?
When I struggle with this, I work to remember that:
- Struggling against it, doesn’t change it …
- It only makes it harder on me.
- Life is not sunshine and roses all the time …
- Not for me, not for anyone.
- I can learn from this situation.
- I will be stronger, smarter and wiser for it.
- Acceptance makes hard times easier.
- Nothing has gone wrong.
Consider it isn’t about if there will be difficulties.
Life guarantees we will all experience difficulties.
You can make it easier on yourself by:
- Choosing to accept the situation.
- Not becoming the victim.
- Realizing everyone struggles.
- Asking for help and support.
- Not shaming or blaming.
