The fear based ego is so quick to internalize blame for things in life that don’t seem to be “working out” or “going right”, and it readily narrates the meaning of perceived failures as reflections of personal inadequacies. However, your soul understands—and wants you to remember—that none of your experiences in life are meant as punishments. Everything is intended to help you achieve your greatest consciousness and fulfillment. Shift from seeing challenges as criticisms of your efforts or weights of shame, both of which only suffocate and disempower. Challenges and unexpected turns in life are all rich with tools laid out for your ultimate gain, so please embrace the opportunities gifted to you to facilitate insight and growth. You are only meant to realize your inherent value. Life would never be designed to make you feel like less.
