Within our life span, we are meant to have several deaths and rebirths within us. When we are not simply learning the lessons in life we are meant to learn or when we hit crossroads in our lives, often times the life in which we know will begin to crumble around us. We will have times of struggle and loss at these crossroad points. We may then begin to lose things that we base our lives around such as jobs, partners, or homes. We can also fail at things that are very important to us but no longer serve us in our lives. When we have struggles like this, it is what is done to make you who you are meant to be. Heartache, loss, trauma and pain can take us to some dark paces but can also push us through the darkness into a very bright light. Allow your pain to bring you to a place of beauty and brilliance. Let your heartache and pain drive you to a destination of strength, peace, and happiness. Use the pain inside you, and let it take you to all the places you always wanted to go and to do all things you always wanted to do. Don't allow pain or heart ache to break you but instead let it wash away all the things that you don't like about yourself. Allow the pain you hold inside break you apart into a million pieces and then let it bring out the best parts of your heart and soul. Let yourself die along with the painful experiences in your life, and start fresh as a better version of the person you have been. Allow pain to bring you to a resurrection of the new you. Resurrect from your pain into the person that you have been waiting to be.
Without pain and struggle, we would still be holding on to the things that we are comfortable doing, rather than releasing those parts of us that need to die. Pain and struggle should be looked at as a blessing brought to us so that we can change and become better. Although pain and loss can be tough, it can be positive because it forces us to be vulnerable within ourselves and what our life truly is. We have to close doors and open new ones, to become better. We often are so comfortable where we are that doors that needed to be slammed shut long ago stay open because we don't want to leave. With failure, loss, or pain that is brought to us, we are forced to closed doors that we may not have closed. We then have to let that part of us die, or we can choose to wallow in that pain. Rather than stagger or be depressed from loss, instead be open to new opportunities and new versions of what life can be. So, the next time you are faced with pain, loss, or failure try to use that situation to be honest, look within yourself and think about why life has brought you to that point. And instead of staying in the darkness of loss and pain, go through it. Begin to move forward into the light of new possibilities and rebirthing of you rather than standing back. Each loss or failure we endure can only bring us one step closer to which we were always meant to be.
