We all experience difficult seasons in our lives.

It could be losing your job through downsizing, or significant health issues in your family or even a child leaving for college (sniff).

These hard experiences are just a part of life, and they won’t stop coming our way even when we want them to.

They will always be there to challenge us.

And the truth is, the way we process experiences like this makes a huge difference in how well we move through them.

There are two sides we experience when we encounter situations like this. We tend to lean into one of them, but the key is to use both to effectively go through these hard experiences.

In this episode, you’ll learn what these two sides are and how you can use them to process hard experiences, heartaches and disappointments.

Listen in…

  • What to do if you can’t easily access either of these two key lenses. (12:43)
