Hard times are always a simple sign of growth potential.
When we learn to listen what those times want tell us, what kind of potential we need to step into, then we will go forward. But if we try to not feel those painful feelings, try to do things which let us feel good in order to not feel into those painful feelings, we will experience similar situations/times over and over again.
Do what is necessary to make yourself being able to face the blockage, which arises.
Meditate, go on a yoga retreat, read a good self help book, visit a workshop, find a coach.. Whatever it is, make sure you do it. Anything else is playing small.
And by playing small you are not able to show up with your beautiful potential, help people, help animals, the nature, the world.
