Love Nuggets Part 4: Getting it right means being okay with being wrong.
Below is part four in our five-part series of "Love Nuggets" - Curated by Suzana Mathews, The Date Maven.
4. Know that getting it right actually means being OK with getting it wrong sometimes.
I learned this from a life coach named Mel Robbins. And this is really closely related to the previous one. It’s like an extension of the one above, but it includes the directive to give yourself some grace.
I could teach a master class on getting it wrong. And I’m A-OK with that. I have learned to allow my feelings to exist. I have learned to allow my feelings to be expressed. And I have learned to let the feelings flow through. I learned this by standing in the reality of what is with a willingness to accept the triumphs and the trials that came my way.
I have also learned that some relationships require a crisis to blast through the emotional logjams. And there’s a lot of connection and freedom and love and opportunity on the other side of those logjams!
Ultimately, it’s about letting your crisis be a crucible of refinement, as my friend Carl Willis, puts it.
