There are few feelings more powerful than want. Only a small number of people even know what it is that they want.
Knowing what you want can be the most empowering experience.
That is why one of the most difficult challenges we can face is when we can’t do what we want.
Personal desires, the plan for a dream, project, or a community, are goals that are susceptible to hardship and misfortune.
When an obstacle prevents you from getting what you want it can leaving you feeling helpless.
The great challenge in these moments is when you can stop focusing on the thing or things that you can’t do and you find a way to work on what you still can do
In this conversation with Tara Massan on our series about Self Acceptance, we discuss a process that can help determine the choices you still have when you can’t do the very things you want to do.
