Let life shock you.
You avoid emotional and spiritual shocks to avoid pain. When it arrives, you do everything to deny them. You want to feel good so you find a distraction.
But how long will you keep running away? Eventually, the shock will strike you. The longer you hide, the stronger it gets.
Stop resisting the shock. Yes, it will hurt, but it’s for your own good. The shock is the medicine for your wounds. Give yourself the permission to feel terrible after getting hit by a shock. That’s when you know you’ve taken the first step.
