Buddhism teaches acceptance of what is. Okay, fine, I accept that he wanted a separation. I accept that our marriage is over. I accept that I feel like shit. But that doesn’t mean I have to stay feeling like this. Acceptance is not the same as condoning. Acceptance is not the same as stasis. You can accept that you feel the way you do now while deciding that you want to feel another way—then planning actions to help you feel the way you want to feel.
The time has come to answer the call of your wild self, where your truest yearnings find their natural expression and your innate potential is waiting to be liberated.
