Strife = Strength
Many people become entrenched in the habit of viewing hardship or difficulty of any kind as undesirable. This is logical. It makes sense. However what we end up realizing is that hardships are unavoidable. We need to blast through all obstacles. If we’re at starting point A and we want to get to point C, it is important that we do not make it a habit of finding a way around obstacle B. This can become an extremely counter productive habit in life. Especially when it comes to emotional processing. The ends justifies the means? In rare cases, yes. In most cases however, especially those that require emotional growth, it’s important to fully process all things. Avoiding difficulty can lead to repressed emotions and unhealthy patterns in the future. Embrace strife, it will lead to strength.
