You know, I’ve been doing a lot of regrouping over the past 2 days thanks to a person that has come into my life in the past few days. And I think I just realized why I don’t have tons of pain in my life, like other people. And please don’t take this as any hit on you Streen, or anyone else, because it’s not a judgement at all. But I think I came into this life already strong. I knew this life I would need it from the get go, and thus came in with a lot of it so I could be the source of strength for others. Primarily this applies to my wife and a few key friends who are going through a lot of different kinds of pain. I get to be that person that helps them pick themselves back up. This wouldn’t work as well if I didn’t have this innate strength.
Now, I do go through things that make me stronger, but this natural resilience is so crucial for my life. Therefore, I have a feeling I won’t be going through anything that’s to the extent of those who go through years of cancer, or car accidents that take years to recover from. It wouldn’t do me as much good as it does others.
Does that make sense? We all chose the circumstances of our lives. And I bet, if you’ve gone through some really tough times, you can find someone around you who was able to give you the support you needed so you weren’t crushed by your life. Perhaps they went through similar situations, but there are probably people that didn’t have to. Those of us in that situation have agreed to incarnate in this lifetime to take on the pain of others and be their crutch for a time. Our struggle is then to learn the difference between being a temporary crutch and an enabler that actually makes others weaker.
What does everyone else think? Lol, I wouldn’t share this if I didn’t hope it would make people think about the situations and people in their lives after all.
