“Many people have decided that they WILL NOT be like their parents. But we all must acknowledge that we’ve spent years absorbing our parents’ positive and negative qualities. Our parents did the best they could given their own pasts. We cannot change the way we were raised, and when we’re willing to look for the lessons in our experiences, we’ll be able to see that each incident provided us with an opportunity to learn and grow.
ALL negative events are blessings in disguise. Some of us choose to live under the illusion that bad things happen for no good reason. But pain has a purpose. It teaches us and guides us to higher levels of awareness.”
Debbie Ford, in “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers”
