We’ve all been advised at some point in our lives to “push through” a difficult experience.
In fact, that “get on with it” mindset has been taught to many of us, all our lives.
I’ve definitely felt the need to “push through” uncomfortable situations in order to makes others more comfortable, “push through” grief and pain and doubt.
Even the wellness industry advises that everything we desire is on the other side of our fears.
Just “push through” and you’ll find success. But what about taking the time to feel things?
What about being honest and speaking up when we’re uncomfortable?
It’s vital that we learn to stop “pushing through” everything.
There’s a time for we rest, a time to sit with our emotions, a time to push back, not through.
And there is growth and freedom in accepting we don’t always have to be pushing.
