A life fully lived doesn’t require special talents or great achievements. It requires courage. Not heroic courage or bravery but the courage to be yourself and participate fully – also when there is a risk of failing or standing alone.
As human beings we tend to turn away from emotions which we perceive as uncomfortable. Consequently, we fail to stay true to ourselves because we believe that something is wrong with us.
All emotions are a ressource – also the uncomfortable. When we are able to fully feel them, we find peace where we used to find turmoil, clarity where we used to find confusion and strength where we used to find insecurity. In reality this discomfort is our most potent fuel when we need to be clear and take action. By learning to embrace our discomfort we empower ourselves to meet change, adversity and conflicts with strength and integrity.
By learning to give space to uncomfortable emotions we empower ourselves to address the actual causes of our problems thus preventing them from reappearing again and again.
