Barriers can keep us safe, but sometimes they can keep us stuck in a place where we don’t belong. Consider the things that appear to be barriers on your journey. Which kind of barrier are they – the ones that keep you safe or the ones that keep you trapped?
Maybe some of the barriers in your life are actually challenges that could help you stretch and grow stronger. It would be unfortunate if we misinterpreted a “barrier.” Some walls may be there to slow you down, while others are for you to climb over. The climbing can teach us things we need to know.
As usual, perspective matters. If you’re sure you have met a barrier that you cannot overcome, consider getting the perspective of another person. Together, things may look different. Connection is power.
