Sometimes There Is No Bright Side

Sometimes there is no bright side.

We need to take the gloves off and feel the rough and jagged edges of our situation. Let it cut, let it bleed. It will hurt. It’s ok. The pain is telling us something: We're alive.

Who’s been teaching us to run from pain?

Pain is everywhere that life is. If we spend our lives running from pain, we never live.

Let go of the sides and let yourself slide down. You don’t die at the bottom - you die waiting at the top.
