Many of our efforts to avoid, suppress, or indulge discomfort fill our lives with struggle, heartache, and activities that are empty and exhausting. Organizing our lives in hopes of eliminating discomfort from uncertainty, failure, or loss can lead us to avoid worthwhile risks, meaningful pursuits, and loving connections. We can practice accepting feelings for what they are, identifying what matters, making small daily choices that serve our values, accepting responsibility for our choices, and learning from the consequences. We can do all of this with compassion for ourselves and others. We can live fully without being a slave to the compulsive pursuit of feeling better.
