Nobody but yourself can tell you what to accept and what to reject — Pema Chodron

The point is to be honest with ourselves, and what is in our minds: thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, the whole thing that adds up to who we are. When this happens, nobody else can really even begin to sort out for us what to accept and what to reject in relation to what wakes us up and what makes us fall asleep.

Nobody else can really tell us what to accept, what opens up our world, what to reject, and what keeps us on the hamster wheel of misery

You are the only one who has the power to choose what you want. And it begins with being honest with yourself. Yes, it is hard. But also, yes, it is worth it.

Manage your choices, manage your life.
