Pain Is In The Resistance

There have been many situations where we have been frozen in our tracks. Perhaps it just started as a dull aching fear of doing something. We knew it had to be done, but we just couldn’t get ourselves to do it. It might have been something as simple as telling a person “no” about a simple request or asking for a raise at work. Somehow, that small item ballooned into something much larger. As the days passed it seemed to take on a life of its own. We walked around with literally a pained expression on our faces. This triviality now loomed in front of us. At some point, perhaps after speaking to our sponsor or being reflective in a share at a meeting; we felt the resistance lift somewhat. Many of us also surrendered to our Higher power and asked that the resistance be removed for us. Then, we seized that moment and forged ahead through the fear. When we had pushed through to the other side we discovered that once we were able to cut through the resistance, the actual task itself was actually fairly minor in nature. All that worry, concern, fear and pain had been of our own creation, and had now lifted.

Personal Reflection: How do I deal with roadblocks to my moving forward?
