I dislike the mindset of pushing through resistance.

When I hit resistance, I do not push through.

The presence of resistance is there to indicate to us that there is a mismatch in energy. I want to go a certain way and something or someone is stopping me.

In my short stint learning kung fu (and many years watching it), I learned that I’m not meant to barrel my way through resistance but to find a way to work with it or around it. That meant sometimes I should move out of the way and let it continue its path while I find a new way or I could deflect it into a new direction as I continue in mine.

What does one do when she is constantly feeling like she is hitting resistance?

She is to stay patient and keep finding a way around it. Eventually, an opening will appear, and she can go through freely.
