No matter what we go through, no matter how we feel, we always have a choice. The choice to bury our head in the sand or face the obstacle in our path. The choice to run away or stand up and fight really depends on the situation because either could be the right action to take. It really has to do with how we see ourselves, what we believe about ourselves and where we believe our strength comes from.
Sometimes the options aren’t desirable or meet our perception and hope of how it would fit into our lives. One of the definitions of fit is being suitable for a specified purpose. Sometimes difficulty and heartbreak are suitable for the specified purpose of developing character and compassion, widening of perspective or recognizing where you got off course and need to refocus. But it comes full circle to choice. We choose to stay where we are or grow. And that’s a powerful thing.
