Reality Bites

“No matter who you are, no matter what you have, no matter what you’ve achieved, you’ve hurt at some point in your life. Of the six universal emotions psychologists have identified – happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, disgust, and anger – the majority indicate pain.”

From Tiny Buddha by Lori Deschene

We have to “educate” ourselves and be aware that this is the reality, and we can not do away with discomfort, pain or suffering. We have to accept it as part of our existence. But it does not mean we should be miserable. We have a choice only if we teach our minds. For some people it is so natural to have a healthy perspective. Based on my experience, I am blessed to have a husband who can focus on what is most important in our life. I am the opposite. I am a worrier, I am anxious, I over think. I am writing because this is part of me training myself. I am teaching myself. We have to channel our thoughts, emotions, energy to the positive or good side. This is a challenge to us. Teaching our minds and being more hopeful/prayerful/spiritual. There is always a battle within and outside. We all hope to triumph. By having peace and living in peace.

  1. I over think, worry and get emotional easy. As for my anxiety people chalk it up to me being over sensitive. You’re not alone and I think that’s why I blog now too. To find others who can share my thoughts and ideas and help me build on them.

    • It is so nice to know that I am not alone. And we keep writing. I think this is really helping me see things clearly and condition or teach my mind. In a way, this should alleviate our anxiety. We have to pour it out, get it out our system, and learn from each other. That this is a beautiful life and we should just learn to go with the flow. Thank you!!!!
