How does this work for the unemployed? I used to have a job and career and now I don't…can't even pay bills. I'm in a swamp of self pity at times.
Perhaps you have time now for things you couldn't do before, such as contemplate your life, consider fully what is meaningful and what you are doing with your life and time, address your deepest fears, embrace yourself in your entirety instead of based on societally-imposed merit…
Me too. Thanks.
I like the first part but the second part is simply annoying. So many situations in which that will not be true andis insulting and hurtful to assert that is so. Would you say that to a father grieving the loss of a child? sometimes life serves you tragedy and you must grieve. To dismiss that as 'self pity' is wrong.
Where can you get this poster?
yes. But it's OK to grieve your losses and move on.
a lama friend told me of a sign his parents had in the house when he was a child that said,
"If you take what you think you need, you'll never receive what you really need."
this is more in regards to taking what is not yours, sorry if i got of track, but this post reminded me of his story. 🙂
