Nobody likes crises. Yet most who have survived one would be able to tell you that they gained something valuable from the experience and how it’s made them better persons. I believe that crises often happen to help steer us back on the path that is aligned with our soul:
Sometimes, it happens after we’ve failed to see and follow repeated signals that our soul had been giving us; when anything short of a crisis would not get our attention.
Other times, it happens because the crisis is deemed to be the best way for us to learn specific lessons.
