Life sometimes seems to be unfair. We experience the same kind of situation over and over again. “Why me?” We suffer, complain, blame others or the conditions around and the lesson goes unlearned.
The moment of clarity
But sooner or later, after suffering for quite some time, we might experience a moment of clarity and can see what the situation can teach us.
We then can hardly understand that we were not able to see what has caused our suffering for all those years.
Learn the Lesson
Repeated breakdowns due to overwork might teach us to communicate our boundaries or to improve our skills to ask for help.
Health issues might teach us to change our priorities and to learn taking care for ourselves.
Failed exams or competitions can be the required lesson to improve our time management and to become more aware of what we continuously tell ourselves. Because we can easily re-create our failures by our expectation.
Which situations in your life might still reoccur to learn your lesson?
Nothing ever goes away
until it has taught us
what we need to know.
