What are you avoiding today?
Is it a conflict, a hard conversation you need to have, dealing with a work situation, disciplining your child consistently—that thing about yourself?
You know what it is. It’s been bothering you—nagging, really. But you keep burying it. But like a zombie that won’t die and keeps crawling back out of the grave, it continues to haunt you.
That guilt, shame, and anxiety keep recurring for a reason.
You’re avoiding what you should do.
Instead, face it. Deal with it. Go towards it, and come what may. Dealing with the hardships of life makes life easier.
If you do, your life will be better than it was before. If anything, you will be better.
You’ll be a better parent, friend, person—human.
