It’s such a big deal to stop blaming other people and the outside world for your problems. It’s liberating, powerful, freeing! You’ve gotten to a place where you can take responsibility for all your emotions–both positive and negative.
But, at the same time, there is something you need to know that sucks about this. It sucks to realize that the only thing stopping you from moving forward in your life and taking action is YOU. You are going to have to do some REALLY hard work that will for sure involve having to experience and process challenging emotions. No longer can you hide behind things outside of you or numb yourself by buffering. Well, okay–you can continue to buffer and not experience your emotions but by now you know that this will only bring you increased negative results in the long term. So, what are you going to do now? What is your next step? I challenge you to take some action and try making it across the river of misery. What’s on the other side? YOUR GOALS–and let me tell you, it’s totally worth experiencing some negative emotions and making it across the river. It’s worth it–YOU’RE worth it!
