Bear defeat

As a tree with strong uninjured roots, though cut down, grows up again, so, when deep craving is not rooted out, suffering arises again and again.


Don’t be afraid to burn a bridge

in order to stop the drama from following you.

May you be blessed with discernment;

to know when to leave a bad situation

and which hurtful relationships must come to an end.

You deserve a life free from turmoil.



"The greatest test of courage on earth

is to bear defeat without losing heart."

Robert G. Ingersoll
