Jagged Edge

14 Jun

Everyone wants an easy life where things always go smoothly and nothing gets in the way. We all want to sail through our days without resistance and trouble. It’s nice to dream about but this is real life and there is always a lot going on. There are people all around us making decisions, many of which we know nothing about but could affect us anyway. Complications come, trouble happens, issues arise and things get messy. If we’ve been seriously impacted and are devastated and hurt, it can feel like we’re covered with jagged edges. Nothing is smooth, nothing is easy and we may be overwhelmed and unsure. Hard times will come to us all, and what we do with them and how we handle them will determine what happens next. If we get angry and refuse to look at the problem, it will remain unsolved and unchecked indefinitely. However, if we stand strong, no matter what has gone wrong, and face everything with courage and clarity, there isn’t anything we can’t manage. The situation might be extreme, and we may be stunned at where we are, but the answers will always be there. By taking our time and trusting ourselves, we can take everything apart step by step and find the way forward. Life is complicated and we may suffer, but there isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us down forever. We are stronger and wiser than we imagine, and will prevail. Every dream is still there for us, and with determination and patience, we will succeed.

We all have things we think we could never survive – the death of a spouse, the betrayal of a lover, the loss of our fortunes, and endless other things. Life is long and at some point our worst dreams may come true. We may believe our lives are destroyed and there is no way we can get through but that will never be true. Even in our darkest hours, even if we’re sure we’re done and there is no hope, there will still be light ahead. There will always be a way out and we are smart enough and strong enough to find it.

When we’re in the midst of despair, someone may tell us to give up and surrender, that there is no way we can ever handle what’s happening. That is only their opinion and nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. There is great courage and wisdom inside us, and when we’re pressed against the wall, we can pull from deep within to find the answers we need. The jagged edges of pain and desperation will not overcome us, but sharpen our vision and bring us clarity. We know what we want, and have everything we need to get it.

Today if you’re suffering through a very difficult passage and feel overcome, trust yourself. You are stronger and more powerful than you think you are. Stand strong and be courageous. You already have everything you need to prevail and nothing can keep you from success. Step forward and be confident. You are amazing and capable. Trust yourself. Every dream awaits and you will make them yours.
