We define people and situations as difficult because they are noncompliant with our current perceptions. As a result, they make us self-conscious which causes us to become aware of our being and as a result, our thoughts and actions.
The discomfort of being in the noncompliant experience compels us to take a look at our beliefs. And in doing so, we have the opportunity to make alterations in how we look at and define the world. It is the discrepancy that is the gift; the discomfort that compels the change.
So, when you experience a discord between what you have believed to be true and what is occurring, be sure to allow yourself to be open to the discomfort inherent in the difficulty. It may be a chance to grow.
