We don't meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.
There are often times when I find myself talking to someone and feeling resentful about the conversation. Very quickly, that resentment spirals and I project that lack of acceptance onto the person themselves by thinking “this person is so annoying!” I often wonder why my Higher Power isn't “saving” me from these uncomfortable situations.
But now that I am in recovery, I am able to see that especially in these situations where I find myself frustrated is when my Higher Power is truly at work in my life. Every time I find myself in a situation where my fear or anger is triggered, I understand now that it is because of an old wound that never truly healed. By bringing me to this situations again and again, my Higher Power is giving me the greatest blessings by allowing me once again an opportunity for my soul to heal these pains that I have carried around with me.
No matter the situation, this, too, is meant to happen. My Higher Power has not abandoned me. Everything is going to be alright. I am always loved.
