Every negative in our lives can be a positive lesson. Every individual on the planet encounters negativity. It might be in an individual, a situation or deeply rooted within ourselves. The trick is to understand that even the bad things that happen in our lives are opportunities for us to grow and become better version of ourselves. Even the most terrible events in our lives offer us opportunities to strengthen our understanding of ourselves.
When bad things happen it is to feel victimized but what has transpired. We wonder why these things happen to us. We often dwell on the pain overlooking what we were really meant to take away from a given experience. We forget that even in the dark we have an opportunity to find the light. We are an ever evolving species, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Everything we experience is an opportunity for understanding and growth.
While in the midst of some horrible or painful trauma we often find ourselves just trying to get by but even this demonstrates our perseverance and personal strength. Often we find it difficult to see through the pain and see what opportunity we have to grow in these times of trouble but they are there. Some things that happen to us are out of our control while others are entirely our doing but in both scenarios there are positives.
The positives are those opportunities, even in our more difficult times, we have to grow, understand and learn. Every experience is an opportunity. The better we understand this the easier it becomes to look for the lessons and opportunity for growth in our experiences. This minimalizes our desire to cling to our pain, harbor animosity and feel victimized by our negative experiences.
The negatives in our lives become what they truly are, some of our more difficult lessons. This often implies they are more significant and often more important things we need to understand. Of course this doesn’t mean that we won’t hurt and suffer. It doesn’t mean that we won’t or shouldn’t grieve. What it means is that we have something to take away from the difficult periods in our lives and may find in conclusion, that these experiences were significant and necessary lessons so that we might grow and become better.
Bad things happen. People are cruel to each other, often we are reckless and sometimes things seem so senseless that it is difficult to understand what learning opportunity could possibly come from an experience. The truth is there is always something to learn and even the most difficult experiences exist so you may grow. Every negative has some positive. You just have to be open to it.
