It occurs to me that you don't really make progress emotionally, spiritually, psychologically until you actively choose those things over which you have no choice. I don't mean passively accept - I mean actively choose. You don't have to LIKE them, but you do have to choose them. Whether it's your lousy parents, an amputated leg or a job loss or any number of unexpected things which happen, you have to choose them before you can open the door and discover the interior gift of them.
And that isn't easy.
Product Endorsement: I absolutely adore Tena Wash Cream. I don't know what I'd do without it. When changing hugely poopy diapers, there's nothing better. Thank you Tena.
