[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Remain open

Facing the ache of ending doesn't compare to the inauthenticity of
continuation

Danielle La Porte

Endings are usually challenging, particularly when you are comfortable, and
as they say, know the devil that you have rather the one that you don't.
Human beings avoid pain and change. It's just the way we have evolved.
Yesterday as I was listening to the speakers at TEDX Women, one thing was
abundantly clear. In birthing something new there is some discomfort, there
may be some paid but when we stop resisting it it brings us a message and
in the end it brings us new beginnings

I am not at the point of having to make decisions about endings, the what
if's are rearing their heads, so this was a timely reminder to not resist,
to remain open, to know that birthing and creating involve some pain and
discomfort

What are you avoiding ending because of the fear of pain and discomfort?

Peace
