“Hard is not the end, it’s just hard.”
This is a quote from a parent when his daughter was struggling in every way in her life.
What a powerful statement.
If you rely on feelings, hard is an end. It’s the end of an interpretation, the end of a way of being in the world that isn’t serving you, the end of working against the abundance of evidence coming your way to gain your attention. That’s it.
Your ego needs to surrender if you are ready to grow.
It’s time to give up some things that aren’t working.
It’s going to be hard, but it’s not the end.
