Obstacles are in our life to make us stronger &/or wiser. I believe we gain much of the energy of the obstacle when we overcome it.
Kinda like how a weight lifter cannot get stronger unless they lift weights. Then the stronger they become,the more weight they need to lift. No sense going into a gym complaining about all the weights, they just get busy lifting them and become stronger.
And so it is with obstacles. As we overcome them we get stronger &/or wiser. If we choose to ignore an obstacle, it will somehow get stronger & more difficult. So best to take care of obstacles as soon as you discover them!
