I have always been one to find the good in a bad situation. Optimism it is called and I have a well of it. I must say as an empath, it is a survival mechanism. Who wants to feel bad? When you feel others bad as well it becomes a life strategy to find good in these areas so you don't have to feel so low.
Today, I was investigating one of the systems of human evolution that are out there. When I found my "type" I must say reading the reality, the description of it, I thought "wow, this is some hard karma!" It well described my life situations so it was not wrong but I had never looked at it in such a challenging view. For a moment I was very disturbed, seeking ways to see it as a good thing. Once I felt the hard and reality of it, admitted that most of my life had these struggles in it yet I never would of made it sound so hard. I don't know if it really is as hard as they made it sound. We all have hard things to figure out in life. It did give me a bad taste in my mouth and I thought, "Really?"
Not long after this perplexing time, I started to come up with words that I have called myself to describe these very same things that seemed in my mind atleast to have a lighter connotation. As I went through the process, letting go of the heavy descriptions I had read and looked at how it was actually true, I saw myself in the more positive light, tenacious, a pioneer, a trail blazer, a discoverer, resilient and a forerunner. I made peace with the other words used that didn't have such good feelings to me. I also realized, "Wow, I am a strong individual to have signed up for such a job in this life!
I think we all have times where the things that are so part of our life, we see them in the best light. When another chats with us, we realize that it sounded challenging and hard to another but we had no choice so we went through it. We don't know the strengths that we have or give ourselves enough credit for the trials we have come through. Another could describe it in ways horrible yet for us to walk through, we use our brilliance to see the lovely growth and light of the situation. Words do have charges and meanings to different people that don't always connect with the depth of our individual understanding. It was a great process in learning.
I do value the life that I have and feel blessed and lucky for all the wonder I have. It is maybe a more challenging position to find new ways of thinking and doing and bring them into a world that has a set way of things. I get that, innovators, explorers have a different way to them. They do learn by trial and error. They do bash their heads into walls and obstacles, get judged and create stirs in thinking. I have done this my whole life and always thought it was just what it was. I considered myself brilliant even if others did not. I found ways to explain and expand others with these discoveries.
Do always look for the best way that works for yourself to describe situations . Honor the life hardships you have overcome and really revel that to another, they would seem horrifying. Honoring ourselves, finding goodness in whatever life throws us or whatever catogories or titles are given to our challenges and remember, often seeing a negative perspective can add great value to your view.
I am thankful for the toughness of this system and its learning. I realized, I am pretty strong and powerful to be in this profile and role. I am perfect to be the discovery type. Maybe you look out there or often a little off your rocker but new ideas, new ways, evolving thinking is what inspires me in this life. I am curious beyond most and my student ethic rich and transformational to me.
Always seek the pleasure and good in things after you have felt the bad and challenge. It is there and it is what the silver lining is all about!!
