When experiencing a rough spot in life. When we are confused, frustrated, and discouraged, we need to take the time to recognize how we are feeling and not just push those feelings aside. We need to acknowledge that they exist. But that's not where it ends. We can only acknowledge it for so long before working on it. That's like saying I feel sick, I know why I am sick, but I’m not going to do anything to fix it. At a certain point, we need to stop just feeling the misery, but we need to consciously work through it and continue on with our lives. At what point you ask? I’m guessing it’s different for everyone.
