How do you deal with the hand you’re given?
Do you take it right away, absorb the pain quick so you can move on with your life? Do you look for new ways to heal old wounds or do you find yourself unable to cope, burrying your feelings in work, with food, by avoiding, denying and repressing what is too difficult to deal with?
Forget about being green. It’s not easy even being human. And we can’t escape it. It’s the common thing that unites us all. What separates us is how we’ve learned to deal with it.
At my grandfather’s funeral years ago, I was the conscious observer watching how each of my relatives managed their pain – some broke down and cried, others stifled their own sadness to assist loved ones. I realized that no one way was better than the other. But that being conscious of how we heal and taking the time to do what works best for each of us is most important.
