Uh...can I get off this ride? NO!!!!
It seems like everyone I've talked to lately has been complaining about the roller-coaster that is personal growth. I'm not knocking them for bitching either because I'm right there with them!
Not too long ago I got out of one my own low cycles. The last few weeks of it were a bit of a hurdle for me emotionally and mentally and I had more than a few days where I just felt like complete shit.
But something cool came out of that too.
I realized that it wasn't as bad as the last time it happened. Sure, it wasn't good. But it was easier to deal with this last time around. I felt a little less shitty. And I learned more from it.
That's why we do the work. Even when we feel we're in a good place. Because these sucky periods of life are unavoidable. But if we prepare for them by getting our mindset right, taking care of ourselves, and tackling our inner demons then they're more manageable than the last time.
So stay on this ride. The lows will get a little less low each time around and the highs will get so much higher.
