Your only focus

Your goal is not to avoid pain, always be brave, stay clear of risks, shy away from difficult conversations, always be positive, forgo heavy responsibilities, never get angry, be perfect.

Your goal is to learn how to manage all that, how to continue on your journey despite all that, how to fall, and say sorry, and say I did not mean to, and get back on track.

Most things are out of your control. The way you adapt to most things should then be your only focus.

One thought on “Your only focus

  1. Spot on there. Our life isn’t about avoiding pain and chasing pleasure. It’s about building ourselves so that when inevitable painful moments come, we’ll be strong enough to weather them. Anyway, thanks for this post!
