As an empowerment coach and someone who has had her own share of trials and tribulations; I can honestly tell you through experience to not fight the resistance.
Accept what it is you’re going through and do whatever it takes to naturally put that smile on your face. The more you fight it (fake it), the worse it gets.
I know it may sound trivial but this is what makes healing take so long. We want to fight away our physical and or emotional pain as if pretending is going to make it better.
Simone Biles, Olympic champion is one person that I’ll mention. She was on GMA Good Morning America a few months ago and indicated that she was on some anti-anxiety medication along with therapy treatment. You can google and find the YouTube video.
Simone accepts what she has to deal with and takes whatever is needed to better herself. It’s no surprise that she’s a champion.
We can all be champions in our life but we must first accept our situations in order to do what’s required to change them.
