As we go through life we inevitably experience suffering. Friends and family cannot always help, which can leave us feeling stuck, hopeless and unaware of what to do. Whilst it can be helpful to turn to a friend or family member, there are times when our experiences are more difficult to understand and resolve. We can lose touch with who we are now and who we want to become and are entangled in our past or thoughts about the future, trying to think our way to a different place, but we never seem to find it. Our culture influences us to “push through” and “be strong,” to ignore our feelings and pursue achievement even when it’s not fulfilling. We eventually become so busy with the doing of life that we forget about being in life. As a result, we become intolerant to discomfort, and we move through life mindlessly, chronically stressed, and disconnected to ourselves and each other.
