If I’m Sad About Something

“If I’m sad about something and I dismiss my sadness by saying, “Oh, well, it was for the best,” then I’m probably not willing or able to explore how I’m feeling.  If I’m angry with someone, and I say, “Oh, it doesn’t matter, I don’t care,” then I probably don’t know what I’m really feeling.

On the other hand, if we can allow ourselves to be gentle with ourselves no matter what our feelings may be, we have the chance of discovering the very deep roots of who we are.”
