“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” (Harriet Beecher Stowe)
Life can be a fickle, tricky business. When life pummels your heart and mind, it can be tempting to give up. When you’re putting together the pieces of a broken heart, broken mind or broken life, sometimes the only remaining solution is to wait it out until it all fits back together.
Absolutely everything eventually changes. Your mind may try to convince you otherwise. But guaranteed, everything eventually changes.
Truthfully, sometimes the change can be a change for the worst. And even if that is the case, it, too, is temporary. Because everything eventually changes. So, if you are at a low point, what might you miss out on if you didn’t wait for the change? If you leave us, you will never know. And neither will we.
You don’t have to wait it out alone, though. You can if you want. But you don’t have to. Who you ask to wait with you is important, though. Oftentimes we can speed up recovery if we cooperate with the helpers, and sometimes it takes the amount of time it takes. So the person who waits with you needs an extra dose of patience. And so do you.
Little by little absolutely everything changes. So please, don’t leave five minutes before your miracle change happens.
Love and light,
The Being Place
