I’ve had some shit times in life..
Some self inflicted, some brought about by the actions of others, some just pure chance. In these moments, one thing I hate the most is to be told “everything happens for a reason”?
I frickin’ haaaaaaate it.
It suggests a higher power with a guiding hand pushing my face into the poop just so something good can happen in the future. That idea don’t sit well with me..
I prefer to think like the Taoist farmer. To try to take the negative as the positive, to attempt to find peace in myself no matter the experiences I have so I can get on with my life.
It don’t always work but it helps me be less controlled by my emotions, be more present and be more of the person I want to be.
