Stuck in the Solution

Unhappiness is not a sin; it is an opportunity to be truthful and to heal.
— Robert Holden

Let’s just think about that for a moment. A common belief for many is that if we are unhappy ~ there is surely something wrong with us.

Or we have the belief that living unhappily is a place of exile where we’ve been forced to exist. We are victims. Someone, something, some situation or circumstance has robbed us of our ability to be happy.

At the very least we think this lonely wretched place is our punishment for somehow not knowing or Being enough!


What if this way of thinking ~ this perpetuated belief ~ simply wasn’t true?

In my Life whenever I’ve felt unhappy, I was usually stuck in thinking about the past & hung up on the “if only’s” and “poor me’s”. I was fixed in a pattern of blaming something outside of me for my emotional state.  

It wasn’t until I got sick & tired of being sick & tired, that I became open to seeing the true source of my unhappiness.

The cool thing is that when I was open, I could also be honest. 

“And the truth shall set you free.”

By letting go of my hold on my negative beliefs that made me feel powerless, I stopped holding others responsible for my feelings. 


When has your awareness of Being unhappy been the key to unlocking your solution?
