If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.-Marcus Aurelius- 📸 @i.am.w.rabbit 🐰
I am in awe of people who can hold their cool no matter what. Those unshakable beings who let life's chaos sweep around them like wind past a smooth rock. They hold power in knowing that their response to life is the only control they have. To remain calm helps us see clearly, as emotion... Continue Reading →
If you think about it, this really underlines the notion that judgement is pointless in the first place, as we have no way to know what another's situation is or how they might have to adjust to cope with things.

Some people tend to doll out advice without regard and may seem condescending at times. Others might focus on listening... Continue Reading →

I think that the very particular type of romantic love that has been sold to the masses is a dangerous and deceiving message. It leads us to the idea that there is one person that can fulfill us in all... Continue Reading →
