It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
Love those that challenge you the most, they are your greatest teachers.
They are simply angels disguised to remind you to love bigger.
And learn the lesson for which you attracted them into your life.
It’s so easy to point the finger in judgment and blame, insisting that they change. But when you do that, you simply disempower yourself and give your power away to them.
No one is worth your happiness and freedom, but it requires taking full responsibility for how you feel.
Here are some key questions:
• What does this person mirror to me about myself?
• What are they showing me about myself that I don’t want to see?
• What do they mirror about me that I resist?
• How do I have the capacity to be like them that I am not owning?
Also remember this: As you step more fully into your light and power, those around you may sometimes feel threatened. You just show them either where they are not embracing theirs or where it scares them. So they may attack you.
They are not really threatened by you, they are actually threatened by their own greatness that you remind them of but have been too afraid to own within themselves.
Resist the natural temptation to fight darkness with darkness. Anger with anger. Hate with hate. This will only perpetuate the cycle of suffering and end up bringing you down.
There are no enemies out there, just those that don’t see themselves clearly yet and thus cannot see you clearly yet either. It may seem personal but recognize that it is not. Then you know that they aren’t really attacking you because it really isn’t about you.
To attack them back or engage in petty back and forth, not only brings you to their level. But ultimately resolves nothing.
When you are driven by anger you cannot create true peace. So make peace with yourself. Make peace with who you are and who you are not.
The more you know yourself, the less you care what others say about you.
When you know the truth of yourself, you have no time for drama.
Don’t give the small flies buzzing around you so much attention when you can enjoy the vast sunsets and miracles of each blessed moment.
Life is too short to waste time worrying about what people think or say about you.
Life is too precious to waste your energy fighting others who don’t really know you anyway.
Those that challenge you the most are just the wind beneath your wings to make you stronger.
In your heart thank them, bless them and send them love. This is the best response. And move on.
Those that challenge you the most are your soul’s gift. They provide you with the opportunity to put your spirituality into real action. They are an invitation to love.
They are simply asking you…
Are you willing to love big?
