How does adversity and it's opportunity show up?
'Discussions' with others.
The need to be right, when there often isn't any 'right' but different ways of seeing or doing the same action.
These are only a few of the ways things show up.
All of these 'situations and feelings' indicate there is a difference between your thoughts/actions and values.
Your feelings are not looking for judgement, but are asking us to observe and explore where we are out of alignment and being authentic.
What is happening, compared to what your hidden beliefs and rules tell you?
Where in the past have you felt unheard, bullied, hurt, victimise, wronged, damaged, violated, etc, etc, etc?
These feelings are triggered to protect from a similar situation happening again. In the now, it is about checking to see if it is valid or an overprotective memory.
How do you want to move forward from this point on?
What action do you need to take to operate from an aligned, more loving choices (to self and others) and not from fear or protection.
What skills or knowledge could you develop or learn to move forwardly more confidently to meet your goal and personal expectations for yourself.
For example, how to say no and create healthy boundaries.
Allow others to be themselves and not be bullied into doing what isn't right for you.
How to have healthy, clear, respectful and honest communication without sacrificing your own values and ethics.
Do you need to physically remove yourself from the situation and to do this, require another place, job, base to walk into first to ensure you mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
Do you need to reach out and ask for help from trusted others, counsellor, doctor, allied health etc. to ensure you are looked after and supported.
Or, maybe you just need to have your voice and tell yourself to get on with what is needed and step into the role you are resisting.
Get over ourselves and to be honest at times 'grow up'. Take full ownership of what is happening, what is being co-created and work on your side of the situation.
Stop pussy footing around and get on with the task at hand, feel the resistance but prove to yourself your greatness and ability to do what is needed to get the job done. As Nike once said "Feel the fear and do it anyway"
After-all, fear, pain, anger etc is only large doses of unexpressed energy that can be used to propel us forward into massive action as encouraged by Anthony Robbins.
