While the family’s wish was that our focus “not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions,” (that’s entirely understandable) —
…I think it’s also important that we see the grander purpose, so that real good can actually come from tragic events like these.
That means shinning the light of awareness on the so-called “dark stuff” — the stuff that we’re seeing can have tragic consequences when it is pushed under the rug for too long.
With the popularity of teachings like “the Secret” and “The Power of Positive Thinking,” it seems we humans don’t like talking about how sad, depressed, anxious, or fearful we’re really feeling — maybe in part because we think we’re actually creating more of it or “manifesting it”.
We’ve all heard this before, right?
“You get what you focus on!”
“You attract what you speak about.”
And so on and so forth.
Besides, we don’t want to burden other people with our problems. That’s just not being nice to our children, partners, family, and friends, now is it? And yes, there are certainly times when a strong intent to focus on “the good” is the right thing to do.
The problem though, is that by refusing to speak about “the dark,” we’re very often repressing it. And what you repress only gets stronger and soon manifests itself more powerfully, often with much more serious consequences, as recent events have reminded us.
In other words, if we’re trying so hard to be positive and refusing to acknowledge feelings of sadness, hopelessness and fear, we’re actually FEEDING those issues and giving the mthe opportunity to “take over,” destroy our happiness, and even our lives later on.
Forcing a positive focus is exactly how small issues get much worse and why people stay stuck in misery for years, and even spiral completely out of control.
2 more dangerous misconceptions…
First, the truth is that speaking to another about your “negative stuff” DOES NOT oblige you to keep creating it over and over. It’s actually the refusing and denying of it which maintains and feeds it. Speaking about it with the intention to clear it, and the understanding that it is not who you are (and therefore temporary) is what is required to move fully through and beyond it.
Second, we think that our negative stuff is so personal and unique to us. Like we’re the only one that feels that way. Baloney! 🙂
As any good coach will tell you, human “stuff” is remarkably similar across the board. Of course, the specific details and situations are different, but the stuck patterns are exactly the same. The issues are the same no matter what words you might personally use to describe your stuckness — sadness, depression, fear, lack of purpose, and so on.
So, if you feel “stuck” in a negative pattern such as sadness, depression, fear, trauma, or whatever, what should you do?
LEARN from this, make the decision, and take action. Not just for your own sake, but for the sake of your children, your partner, your friends, and whoever else.
If you’ve had a stuck pattern for years, don’t fool yourself to thinking it’s getting better, when it really is not. Don’t cover it up with phony affirmations and positive thinking that everything is just fine. That just makes it worse and sets the stage for a future “reckoning.”
Instead, be honest with yourself and be determined — know that what you truly are is beyond any stuck pattern. But equally, decide and be determined that you will do whatever it takes to eradicate this pattern in your life so you can be done with it... and actually move forward and do what you are really here on this planet to be, do and fully enjoy.
Because the technology now exists to 100% eradicate your stuck pattern. The question is, will you do what it takes?
It’s no longer necessary to be held hostage by your stuff. You can be free of it if you’re willing to do what it takes.
And it doesn’t take much – just the firm decision and a little action.

P.S. A final thought:
Whenever you’re not sure what decision to take in life, here’s a quick test you can do to help you decide which way to go. It’s called the “Rocking Chair Test” and I believe I first heard about this from Tony Robbins, though I’m not certain.
Whenever you’re not sure whether to do something or not, imagine you are an old man or woman at the end of your life…. rocking on your rocking chair…. looking back on all the decisions made throughout your lifetime…and their consequences, good and bad.
As you’re sitting there now, rocking in your rocking chair, if YOUR stuck pattern has not changed, what are the likely consequences, in your finances, your health and your relationship? Really stop and think about it…… And what’s the worst case scenario?
Honestly, are you satisfied with that?
And equally, if you made the decision and your stuck pattern was completely eradicated, allowing you to “live the life you were meant to,” what would THAT look like and how would
Honestly, are you satisfied with that?
