When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into its dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment, or awakening to our true nature, to our fundamental goodness. Another word for this is freedom…” – Pema Chodron
I think I’ve been resisting change for the past three years.
I met up with my ex.
He has a girlfriend.
I thought I moved on. Apparently I haven’t.
My heart feels like it ripped open even more.
