I came across this book, or this book was placed in my path. Either way, I am so pleased to be reading it : The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
“If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn't walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find that you don't need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.”
― Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
To me this has not been an obvious cause and effect. Whether I learned my smoke and mirror thinking or not, what I do know now is that I have the ability to shift my thinking. I have the ability to change.
(Please note : simple does not mean without effort or easy)
