“This Is Going To Hurt.”

It’s my unfortunate responsibility today to tell you that you will reach decisions in your life where no matter what you do, it’s going to hurt.

All the options you consider will look dark. You’ll see pain in every direction. Your emotions will feel strained to the breaking point. All you’ll want to do is find relief.

In these moments your discipline to choose matters more than ever.

Lean into the emotion that moves you forward. Even if that emotion sucks to experience. No matter how painful it is, it’s not the worst option.

Because two awful places to emotionally live are:

  1. Avoiding painful emotions while things get worse.
  2. Experiencing painful emotions while nothing gets better.

If it’s going to suck, and sometimes it will, lean into the emotion most likely to lead you out of the dark place and back into the light.

Everything is training for something.
