rules of engagment #3

expect forces of opposition and obstacles that either distract you from what you need to do in order to get married, or those that seem to block your path completely. engagement is a time of accelerated growth. during this time we all become painfully aware of everything that stands in the way as well as realize what effort is required to overcome them.

“Pain is a great teacher. Yet the greatest teacher imparts little wisdom if the student has not the eyes to see and ears to hear. I write this so that we may benefit from our suffering and triumph over our pain… and in the process become better, stronger, warmer, more compassionate, deeper, happier human beings – realizing that the ultimate value of pain reduction is not comfort, but growth.” - G. R. Schiraldi, Conquer Anxiety, Worry, and Nervous Fatigue: A Guide to Greater Peace, from the foreword.
