    Knowing the truth. Understanding the truth. Accepting the truth.

    This is exactly where I need to be right now. So hard to accept the truth sometimes though.

    Ok, so I'll be the random dude today who gives the other side of this one. This can easily become a trap and a habit. It's always easier not to do something than to do something. Not saying it's be easy to walk away in every situation when it is a habit to engage, but the "will" of inaction is strong, and it can turn into a run away train. For me, it's so easy to disengage, to discount whatever little thing irritated or confronted me. But always pulling yourself out of the situation can make you stagnant, never growing. There are healthy ways to engage and confront that person or situation. Or so I'm told lol

    I relate to this so much! It's just hard learning to do all of this.

    This is very similar to the Buddhist precept that attachment is the root of all suffering. In this case, when you're attached to other people perfectly understanding you or your actions, the disconnect between that expectation and reality causes suffering. Disappointment/suffering = expectations - reality

    This reminds me how I've learned not to do this. An extremely close friend of mine would ignore me purposely and I would lash out at her because I was hurt, and it caused the end of that friendship, now that I'm in a relationship where on occasion the same thing happens, I stay calm and handle it better, it hurts but I wouldn't have learned this if it wasn't for losing my friend

    I needed to see this. I had an altercation with my MIL last night. Instead of wasting time fueling the flame. I just stopped talking and went outside to catch my breath, and realized that she just has a lot of negativity inside of her and that it's not me that's the issue. it's an endless cycle with that lady. But i hope she gets better.

    This is another way of saying, “If I bury my head in the sand and pretend that ignorance is bliss then I won’t have to actually participate in the real world with real people and real realities.

    I love these posts by people who dont have people outside themselves forcing their will on them. Like the United states court systems actively keeping children from their fathers because they served in the army regardless of the stability or mental health of the mother. Easy to let things be when others dont take your livelihood from you. Having to make do and put your life on hold hoping someone will eventually care about fathers rights on this country.

    So true and I find it so difficult. I’m stubborn and have a hard time accepting things I can’t change. It leads to frustration and inner turmoil. Still working on this, but it’s absolutely true.

    This, but always mentally note - lightly - some causal connections between things. This is the exact attitude most of my coworkers have, and they have been perpetually, continually accepting bullshit from the supervisors. You talk to them and they are annoyed, but none of them spent the time to think...why are the supervisors doing these things? I did, and discovered that the supervisors legitimately needed help, but were afraid to ask people. Stepping in to help them alleviated some of their stress, which prevented a lot of bullshit, which made everyone *actually* happier. There's a big difference between accepting what is and taking the steps to change what should and can be changed - and it is never best to simply ignore those things forever.

    It’s better to be authentic and genuine than it is to do nothing. Be honest with everyone, including yourself. The only way I know of to get the life you want is to take action. “I was waiting for something extraordinary to happen but as the years wasted on nothing ever did unless I caused it.” - Bukowsi

    Pretty much the core of Ancient Stoicism. Its my life philosophy. Its not so much about not reacting but controlling your reaction.

    My life got way better after understanding that no one in this world trully cares about me. It was difficult to look around and see it clear, but it brought to my life a strange peace. It made my thoughts calm. It made me understand the world around. No more jealousy, no more fake expectations, just me and simple surroundings. Just me and small things that make me happy. Sometimes, just sometimes, I meet people who find happiness in same small things as I do and then, only then I feel like someone understands the way I am. I small but satysfing matter.
