Not Taking Ourselves Too Seriously

We’re vulnerable to triggers if we take ourselves and whatever experiences that arise too seriously ie when we’re attached to our selves or sense of self. Of course, we have to be discerning about our boundaries. Here is a practice of merely observing, and not taking everything that arises so seriously to learn to let go.

Beautiful World, written by Isabelle Thye

It is sad that sometimes people focus on what is lacking instead of what is thriving. We can never diminish differences, but love, life, and gratitude are living things that could grow bigger and bigger.

Sometimes I fell into this trap and felt miserable too.

It’s okay that not everyone sees what you see, don’t take yourself too seriously. I’ll remind myself when I come back to my senses.

My life means something when I can write like this.

While I am here, the world is too beautiful to not enjoy it.
