Often our suffering is caused by avoiding the unpleasant things we feel inside. The longer we avoid looking at the pain, the more our external reality begins to reflect what we wish to escape.
The way out is through. Once you notice that you feel bad, just admit it. Own it. “I’ve noticed that I feel like shit, and that’s okay.” That’s all you have to do to release your suffering. Embrace the negative and accept it for what it is.
