While it is easy to wish some situations or circumstances away, the best solution most often is to work through it. This means tackling that thing and finding solutions to overcome it. If you avoid pain, you spend much of your life doing just that…living in a state of avoidance. In reality, you need to work through it. You need to understand what got you there and what it takes to solve it. Once you work through it, that thing no longer has a hold over you.
Some people live what they consider to be a “safe” life, avoiding and prohibiting any opportunity for pain or gain. You must work through that thing in order to redefine that thing. Failing forward is good because you maintain momentum!
