What Are Our Disturbances Trying to Tell Us?

One of my favorite shows to watch on Sunday is Super Soul. I'm always inspired by learning life lessons from others and gaining new perspectives for the new week ahead. 

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, hit home for me when he talked about "Removing Your Inner Thorn." 

What does he mean by this? 

Your inner thorn represents you disturbances. For example, 

1. Why does rage continue to resurface? 

2. Why do we allow others to disturb us?

3. Why do we get upset when someone cuts us off?

When we're disturbed, it's our hearts telling us something isn't right.

It's not the situation or the person making us upset, there's a deeper problem that has manifested itself over time that may not have been addressed. It's a sign more healing is needed.

As we progress in life, we are able to identify triggers and know when to walk away. 

I used to think by walking away was a sign of weakness. I felt powerless. However, I learned it was a powerful move. 

Learning how to deescalate is cruciual to our mental well-being. Whether it's walking away from a situation or removing someone from Facebook. 

Surround yourself with people who keep you on an even temperament and leave you feeling positive.
