There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
Oscar Wilde

 

Both tragedies happened to me this year, I got things that I wanted and didn’t get others. Both ended up in mental tragedies. The worst thing is that I’m not happy for the good things in my life, all because of those other things I don’t/do have. I’m making myself miserable for nothing, that’s right, the things I don’t/do have are nothing, and yet I keep longing them.

 

The truth is, I’m basing my happiness on these “achievements”. This is wrong. All material stuff is expendable, titles don’t define you, people walk in and out of your life all the time.

 

You have what you are.

John Steinbeck

 

Time to break old codes, time to get rid of ghosts, time to understand that it doesn’t matter, that anxiety and despair are useless, destructive. So now I walk this new path, where there’s unity, love, friendship and there will be happiness throwing away all these useless baggage and cultivating the important things. It wont be easy, but I’m sure I’m not alone and it’s all worth it.

 

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

Buddha
