I’m going to say that sometimes you can do everything to the best of your ability and you still won't be able to please certain people. Maybe it's fair to say adversarial characters come into our lives for a purpose. Yes, they are bothersome and certainly might oppose your every move, yet could it be that they also offer innate benefits? Is change the objective? Could you say that Universe has other plans for you? Are you being coaxed to move differently? Perhaps this is the means taken to reroute or redirect your future steps. If you simply focus on the negative aspects, you have neglected to connect with the others. Maybe there are positive points too. You see there is a gift here.
I’ll call certain life choices missteps and reference those individuals who make life difficult as being course correctors. Through the adversarial energy created, they offer a means of course correction. They motivate us to change direction or change the course taken. They motivate us to look for another avenue to employ.
