The first step in the “before” pillar is to accept reality, why it is important, and why resisting reality causes our suffering.

Why accept reality?

Rejecting it doesn’t change it.

Pain can’t be avoided.

We can’t change reality until we accept it.

Pushing against reality feels suffocating, like I’m in a pressure cooker. If you let the circumstance be without resisting it, the pressure subsides and you’ll feel calmer, more present, and more able to handle the situation.

Our power lies in how we choose to react. We can’t prevent pain, but we can choose how we react to it.
