Your Missing Link

December 11, 2018

Look at the words below. Which of these statements offer insight into how you're feeling at the moment, or how you've felt much of your life? Choose one that resonates most: 

"Bitterness shows where you need to heal, where you're still holding judgment on others and yourself. 

Resentment shows you where you were living in the past and not allowing the present to be as it is. 

Discomfort shows you that you need to pay attention right now to what is happening because you're being given the opportunity to change. 

Anger shows you what you're passionate about, where your boundaries are, and what you believe needs to change about the world. 

Disappointment shows you that you tried for something, that you did not give in to apathy, that you still care. 

Guilt shows you that you're still living life in other people's expectations of what you should do. 

Shame shows you that you're internalizing other people's beliefs about who you should be (or who you are).

Anxiety shows you that you need to be present, that you're stuck in the past and living in fear of the future. 

Sadness shows you the depth of your feeling, the depth of your care for others and this world."

When I stumbled on these definitions from an unknown author, I was excited to share because if you're looking for your purpose, or if you think you haven't fully found yours, this could be your missing link. 

In life, negative feelings are often judged as weaknesses--something to transcend, so peace and harmony can find its way. And yet, if you cut out emotions that are deemed unworthy, you're unlikely to find your purpose. 

Look at the list above. Which one do you recognize as true? Which do you reject? For example, my purpose connects me to sadness. I acquiesce to sadness because it's intertwined with my gift. If I were to fear sorrow, I'd be walking away from my purpose. Conversely, I have to reject shame to avoid internalizing other people's beliefs about me. See how this works?

Our purpose requires things that are difficult for us. When this happens, we can fold in on ourselves and not see the big picture. This is an important part of your journey, and I'll be right here when you need me. 

Until Next Time
