Among the greatest sources of unhappiness, in my experience, is the trouble we have in accepting things as they are.
Without judgment, without wishing for otherwise.
When we discover something we don’t like, we wish it could be different — we cry out for something more beneficial. That may be human nature, or maybe it’s something that’s deep-seated in our culture.
The root of the unhappiness isn’t inevitably that we wish things to be different; all the same, it’s that we decided we didn’t like it in the first place. We’ve pronounced it as bad, instead of saying, “It’s not bad or good, it just is.”
You ought to expect individuals to mess up, expect things to go differently than you designed, and you should embrace that.
It’s too negative to anticipate things will go wrong, people say. However: it’s only negative if you see it as negative. If you gauge it as bad.
As an alternative, you could accept it as the way the world works — as the way matters really are. And try to comprehend why that is, and embrace it. As it is.
