Wisdom of the Ages 76

“Don’t fear discomfort. We unfortunately live in a “comfort culture” where uncomfortable emotions are demonized and repressed and uncomfortable situations are to be avoided at all costs. Yet only when life hands us problems that are uncomfortable, distressing and downright painful can we learn who we really are and grow to our full potential. Never put up with abuse, but always face difficulty with all the courage and integrity you can muster.
What do you get when you protect a child from everything? An adult who can’t cope with anything.
And a friend of mine summed things up nicely:
Work like you don’t need money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt
And dance like no one’s watching.”
Female, age 35, USA
