In my work I often get clients who say things like;
“I just wish the stress would go away!” “I just wish I didn’t have to feel such disappointment” & “I just wish this feeling would go away” These are dead people's goals. Only dead people never get stressed, never feel disappointment and never feel down. Tough emotions are a part of the contract for life and any resistance to this fact will only attract the very thing we avoid. When we make peace with both positive and negative emotions and situations with gentle acceptance we are centred and find beauty in the reality of life. Discomfort is the price of admission for a meaningful life - Susan David.
