At times, all you can do is accept you’re uncomfortable and be as patient as possible. It is certainly painful emotionally and physically to feel uneasy for a season. It’s important to remind yourself that discomfort is temporary and that suffering is part of everything. There’s not much you can do for relief, but allow yourself to feel, process, and wait. While you wait, find ways to self-soothe and don’t forget there are many books to read, songs to listen to, and places to explore. Growth comes from suffering. Therefore, focusing on the growth ahead and that beautiful outcome helps me hold my head high when it feels so damn heavy.
