Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know
Posted on March 16 2015
I ask questions. Sometimes, I ask a lot of questions. If I don’t know, I ask. If I know, I still ask because I could learn something. I’m not afraid to ask others questions, I’m not afraid to ask myself questions and I’m definitely not afraid to ask LIFE questions. I learned at a very young age that there is nothing blissful about ignorance.
“If you don’t ask, you’ll never know,” my mother’s voice often echoes in my head. I suppose it’s why I find it strange when people who experience certain scenarios over and over again in their lives, never stop to ask “why?”
I’m a big believer in the idea that things don’t just happen at random. Life experiences are meant to teach us something about ourselves; to grow us and to mature us. We do not get to move on to the next chapter until we’ve finished this chapter’s lesson and passed the test at the end.
Whenever I talk to someone who says, “I’m not sure why I attract bad guys / girls” or “I don’t know why people always take advantage of me,“ the first thing that I suggest is to look within. The interesting thing is that it’s never about the other person. It’s about what’s happening within the self. You can’t ever change someone else. The only person you can change is yourself and that goes for your habits, perceptions and actions. When you fix what’s broken on the inside, your outside situations start to mirror and reflect that perfection.
It’s important to be aware at all times of what your soul is trying to perfect. All you have to do is pay attention and be present to what’s happening around you. If you find yourself constantly being bullied, it could be Life’s way of teaching you to stand up for yourself and trust me, the situation will keep popping up until you take control, find some inner strength and stand up for yourself. If you find yourself in one bad relationship after another, then maybe it’s a challenge to start recognizing your worth and realize that you deserve so much more.
Like I said, nothing happens to us in this journey by accident and nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.
Here’s to a week of awareness and change.
