I say this all the time. Our culture, our media, and our advertising want us to believe that suffering is bad; otherwise how would they sell us their product?!
But what if we acknowledged it, letting it rest by us like a cherished pet? What if we accepted it for its very natural place in our existence? We don’t have to keep repeating the hurtful pattern OR use our suffering as a way of receiving validation from ourselves or others. However we also may not need to expend such incredibly valuable energy judging and fighting it.
It is time to give the permission ... to let it be.
