It’s worth it to ask yourself how much of the suffering in your life is a result of your choices.

It’s worth it to ask yourself how much of the suffering in your life is a result of your choices.

Are you choosing to not stand up for yourself?

Not wanting to rock the boat and therefore silently suffering?

Refusing to believe the truth, and holding on to a smothering dream?

Focusing on what you don’t have instead of what you do have?

Investing more energy in holding it all in rather than reaching out
for help?

These aren’t questions I’m putting out there as judgments – they are questions, actually, that I can say I’ve had to answer for myself, and make changes when I answered them!

As the famous saying goes, pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
