Stand Strong.

Don’t let any place that you are standing frighten you. All it is, is a byproduct of some Energy alignment, which only gives you stronger clarity about what you want — and, most importantly, greater sensitivity about whether you’re in a receiving mode or locked off of it.

— Abraham

 What does this mean? 
It reminds me of the Carl Jung quote that explains how the attributes that drive us crazy in others are simply mirrors of our own life.  I think about the situations, the arguments, and the awkward situations I’ve experienced in my life and choose to take responsibility for each one.  If we believe that we create our experience to further improve our life in some way or another, wouldn’t it make sense that we would attract the experiences to challenge us to grow into a better, whole person? 
I think about the the relationships I’ve had and the ones I’ve been forced into that felt hard to handle and frustrating and I have decided there was a reason I needed to have that experience.  Either to help me see another point of view or to challenge my personal growth.
Such a slight change in perception of the world can bring more beautiful positive experiences into our lives.  How often have you slightly changed your perception and the whole experience has changed? Even if it’s as small as smiling at people in the grocery store instead of just barreling through to get it over with? 
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.” ~Carl JungImage
