Through Not Around
June 16, 2016
You have to work through your problems, not around them. The path through problems is the harder path. It requires patience, emotional restraint, & accountability. It's hard to look within yourself. You might not like what you see. But either you will go within or you will go without in life. Working around problems is a sign of emotional immaturity.
It only creates exponentially more problems.
You rob yourself of learning necessary life skills for conflict resolution.
Working through emotional problems is pain with a purpose.
Talk about the tension you have with other people.
Apologize. Empathize. Reframe. Forgive. Move on.
It's a life skill that leads to a clearer mind and less burdened heart
