Fear and adversity

Without fear, I can not overcome fear.

Without sadness, I can not grieve loss.

Without shame, I can not set my own boundaries with full awareness.

Without guilt, I can not learn from my mistakes.

Without anger, I can not tell when I am at risk and when I am at peace.

The key is to fully feel and move into and through the feelings. Not to get stuck in them, but to invite and honor them so that they might transform from enemy to teacher.

Where in your life can you learn and grow through your feelings?
