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 you really protecting when you seek to create a frictionless life for others? In other words, WHO are you really doing it for?"
Ponder on that, and then share your thoughts and questions with me below.
