‘Self’ Discipline: Okay Even If… A lot of the time, our circumstances are not ideal. A lot of the time our lives are not what we wish them to be… our relationships are not how we wish them to be… but, it is important to be okay even if these things are true in the moment.
Life is not easy. Life is constantly changing, we are constantly evolving, and no matter how hard we try to avoid it, conflict is always present. Whether it be inner conflict, conflict with others, or conflict with our environment, conflict itself, struggle itself is not a bad thing. Do not avoid it. We must learn to be okay even if nothing in our lives is going ‘well.’ The experience of conflict itself is much more important than the outcome of the conflict. In reality, our circumstances do control our inner state of peace. We must be aware of this fact and maintain our peace despite what may be occurring outside of ourselves.
Okay Even If
