The slap in the face of criticism, seemingly adverse circumstances, and radical change are only leading us into our new life.
We can have uninterrupted happiness, or at least peace, if we quit defending our pre-event condition.
One pleasant side-effect is that we don’t look ridiculous holding on to the skeleton of a lost cause.
Believe me; our illusion is much clearer to everyone else than to us.
