When was the last time you ranted to a friend or family member about how something was unfair or just downright wrong?
Sometimes it can be really hard to remember that everything is just as it should be.
When we’re much further down the line, we can find ourselves looking back and realising that we wouldn’t be where we are without that particular event taking place. For me, times were hard in the run up to my decision to leave London, but I know now that everything needed to play out in that exact way. If it hadn’t, I might have been happy plodding along down South and I wouldn’t have moved to Newcastle. If I hadn’t moved to Newcastle when I did, I might not have got the job that I got, and if that hadn’t happened I might not have met Alex.
At the time, things can appear to be annoying or upsetting, but time allows us to look back with a more objective pair of eyes.
If you’re struggling with how something is right now, remember that the pain will ease as time goes on, and if you can, look for ways in which you can start to quietly accept what is right now.
