When it's hard to see a way past something

Do you ever wish you could take a magic pill or potion that would miraculously solve your life's issues? I have been feeling a bit like that today.

Whilst I know that acceptance and allowing even the most difficult things to be as they are is the better way to go, my instinct is still to lash out in frustration and wish that the things that bug me had been resolved years ago. There is also a bit of balance necessary - sometimes, mere 'acceptance' isn't enough and a good rant does help - as long as you have a bit of self awareness and even accept that you feel frustration and anger at this very moment.

Emotions are the result of blocked energy and can be difficult to deal with - and as a highly sensitive person who feels everything deeply, I sometimes feel like running a mile when difficult stuff comes up.

There's no point in beating yourself up when you feel shit - I believe that we are all doing the best we can. As much as you may sometimes wish that things would be different, you have to start from where you are. Sometimes, the challenges can seem insurmountable - but at the end of the day, we are here to learn and to help others, not have an easy life.

Listen to your body and ask what it needs. Meditate. Go out in nature. Have a good rant if that's what you need. Ask for help. There are no quick fixes - just do the best you can to allow things to be as they are and be open to what lessons the tough times can teach you.
