When we are hurting it can seem almost cruel to hear that pain is a remarkable opportunity. But it is. And later we will see those opportunities in hindsight. It is not always so easy to see them when we are in the middle of the pain.
There are gems in our pain. There are healing moments that we can take advantage of if we do not close down our hearts and minds. That is not always easy – we want to protect ourselves, naturally. But if we keep ourselves open for learning opportunities, we can really have some remarkable growth.
