There are going to be times when life throws us things that we aren’t expecting.
Getting fired, being dumped, rain on your wedding day, or your overseas trip getting canceled.
Whilst these can be pretty upsetting, as human beings we’re really good at amplifying them and getting stuck in the injustice of it all. Unfortunately, we tend to draw out our suffering, rather than being able to move on, when we refuse to accept the reality (and often uncontrollable nature) of things.
Thankfully, the trusty (although sometimes hard to swallow) pill of 'acceptance' enables us to free ourselves from the grips of indignation and resistance.
