Turning a Negative Experience into a Positive Life Lesson

Our attitude and how we think about something determines our experience of it. One person can have an experience and be devastated by it. Another person can have a similar experience and choose to see it as an opportunity from which they can learn. Scientists and physicists are now proving that everything is energy and that energy reacts in relationship to Human thought and expectation. Therefore, how we think about a situation determines our reality.

What does this mean in our daily lives? We choose how we want people to treat us by the behaviors we accept in others and by how we expect to be treated. In our childhood, we set the stage and form our beliefs about how much abundance, intimacy, joy and pleasure we can expect in our lives. I grew up believing that if people knew who I really was, I wouldn’t be accepted. As a result, I spent many years trying to please people by attempting to be what I thought they expected. I had no idea who I really was.

Let’s chat. Think of an experience that you have seen as negative. Perhaps you did (or did not do) something because you allowed someone to influence or limit you. How can you now see that situation in a positive light? What life lesson did you learn? What experience did you gain that helped you stand stronger in your own power? Feel free to share that here now.
