Ep. 21 - Unnecessary Suffering

Is all suffering necessary, or do we suffer unnecessarily at times, and for too long? Good question, right? When we think for too long about something that brings us unhappiness, we prolong our suffering.  Ever thought of that? One of the things to be aware of is our thoughts or judgement, of our surroundings and/or circumstances, past or present. Most often (always, really!), our thinking about a particular event/comment/situation creates our reality… for better or worse. If it was always for the better, I would not be writing this.  But I’m writing (or recording this podcast) for the instances when our thinking creates a reality we do not desire… in other words, unnecessary suffering in one form or another. It is not to say that our circumstances will never causes pain and or suffering… the question is for how long, and is it necessary? When a loved one dies we experience pain and we suffer, but that’s not unusual… it’s just part of being a human here on earth.  But what about when a significant other “mistreats” us in some way and we’re never able to let go of it…  Maybe even after decades?  That may fall under unnecessary suffering, and it would serve us to examine our thoughts about it. Seeking professional treatment/therapy is one way, and another way is to examine our thinking…  Our own interpretation of the facts. Today I invite you to examine your thoughts about anything in your life that’s not just holding you back from enjoying your life to the fullest, but also causing you unnecessary pain and suffering.  It’s all in our THOUGHTS!! If there is anything in your life that you feel you want to talk about, I am currently offering a FREE coaching call (no obligation), so feel free to reach out to set up a call to go over anything that doesn’t feel right.
