There are times in our all of our lives where if feels like everything is conspiring against us. The people in our lives are being difficult, or not living up to our expectations. Or, the events or circumstances of our lives aren’t showing up in ways that we desire, or are just downright difficult and unpleasant.

It’s very easy, when we find ourselves in these situations, to begin to have an overarching feeling that the world is against us; that our happiness, our very sense of well being is completely out of our hands. It feels like we cannot be complete unless everything falls into place in the way we imagined it would. It’s a belief that the lives of our dreams are obtained through outside sources; over which we have very little control.

In this podcast we learn that we are not the center of the universe, and that life, doesn’t have it out for us. Life is simply doing what life does and sometimes we simply get caught in the middle of it all. It’s not life that is making things hard for us, it’s our attitudes and responses to life’s events that cause us pain.

In the end, we discover that it is ultimately our responsibility to learn to take things as they come and make choices based on things (and people) as they are, and drop our the notion that they are supposed to be the way we want them to be.
