Is suffering necessary? Yes and no.

“Is suffering necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you as a human being, no humility, no compassion. You would not be reading this now. Suffering cracks open the shell of the ego, and then comes the point when it has served its purpose. Suffering is necessary until you realize it is not necessary.” – Eckhart Tolle

Oh! That makes sense!

I know that long after I left my first abuser, I carried the pain with me. It tore me up.

Emotionally I struggled with letting go of the pain, as I had identified with it for so long.

I didn’t know how to feel happy or comfortable for any length of time.

I was always on my guard expecting a new negative event, so I was geared to see the negative long before it arrived, so no surprise that I felt very overwhelmed a lot because of all the negativity!

Then one day I heard that I didn’t need to suffer any more, and it lighted a fire in my heart to do the hard work to not only repair the damage but to learn to become a whole and happy person!

Where are you on this spectrum?

Are you ready to move beyond where you find yourself?

You can do this! You know you want to!

Blessings!
