Struggling against reality is the only cause of suffering.
You want more purpose, wealth, health, popularity, love and power. You WISH for it. You compare your current life to one that has all these things and come to believe your current life is 'not good enough'. You even believe that YOU are not good enough, incomplete and failing at life.
If you can change this perspective, to realise that here and now is the only thing that's real and controllable, your suffering can come to an end.
One of the best life skills you can develop is the ability to rest, recover, let go, reflect and learn from your experiences. Without this ability, we suffer continual stress, epic burn-out, and we repeat the same mistakes again and again and again.
