I’m feeling introspective. In the last few weeks, life has taught me a lesson about acceptance.
Newton’s third law applies to physics (for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction). But it does not have to apply to all areas of your life.
Before reacting, it’s a good idea to consider whether or not the issue deserves your limited time and energy. Sometimes accepting and letting go is the right thing to do. Sometimes it’s not. But only you get to decide what you are willing to spend your time and energy on.
If you are swimming in the ocean, it is easier to float with the waves than to fight against them.
