What You Resist, Persists

“Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.”

Eckhart Tolle

No amount of strength will change the fact that we are human, and to be human means to hurt. We won’t hurt always, and we don’t have to suffer endlessly, but we will feel emotions all through our lives.
Even if we become really adept at dealing with uncomfortable emotions, we will never completely transcend them. And would we even want to? The ability to feel the darkest of moments gives us the capacity to enjoy the lightest.

Only in experiencing and then taking power away from our emotions can we then let them go and move on.
