Our most significant learning comes from facing challenges head-on and working through them. The bad times in life are opportunities for exponential growth, and we should seek to capitalize on them. It's the only way to reach our full potential.

That said, if we're constantly trying to protect the people we care about from painful life experiences, we are essentially robbing them of opportunities to evolve into stronger, more resilient, and self-sufficient human beings. Instead of protecting them from adversity, we should show them how to navigate it. In doing so, we'll bring much more value to their lives.

Still not convinced? Consider this question:

"Who are we really protecting when we seek to create a frictionless life for others? WHO are we really doing it for?"

It is unpleasant to watch loved ones go through tough times. Being the good people we are, we'd much rather protect them from painful life experiences because, in doing so, we shield them and ourselves from discomfort.

Sure, in the short term, that feels much better. But long term, we could be setting them up for an even more difficult life. 

Ponder on that and share your thoughts with me below.
