If I said to you ‘get a fork out of the draw and stab yourself with it all day long’ the response would more than likely be ‘no!!! that’s crazy…why would anyone do that?’
Yet mentally we choose to stab ourselves with a fork all day long and make ourselves suffer from our mind and its ego. We choose how we react to anything, whether or not to let it matter and affect us. We choose whether or not to accept what is or suffer denying it. We choose to resist what is and suffer trying to make it different when that is impossible.
Leave the fork in the draw and be kind to yourself and choose not to suffer.
