Learn whatever lesson comes your way.
“We must simply learn to become whole and complete within ourselves, free to be with or without a companion, free to depend upon ourselves, know who we are, not be led around by other, but walk freely on our own two feet on this precious earth. When you are able to do that, you do not have to protect a false image of yourself in order to feel lovable: – Zen and The Art of Falling In Love.
“When your efforts are not directed at a cause or a purpose, how will you know what to do day in and day out? How will you know what to say no to and what to say yes to? How will you know when you’ve had enough, when you’ve reached your goal, when you’ve gotten off track, if you’ve never defined what those things are? The answer is that you cannot. And so you are driven into failure – or worse, into madness by the oblivion of directionlessness.” – The Daily Stoic
