During a desperately difficult time in my life, Chodron's counsel calmed me.
I had no idea how my terrible situation would be resolved (or not) or how I would be able to continue on.Chodron said that it was CRITICAL for a suffering individual to learn how to care for herself inside this uncertain, suffering state, day by day, hour by hour, - and not to wait till everything was "all better" before agreeing to eat quality meals, bathe and dress, or go for a walk for an hour, even during great stress.
Chodron said it is a far more laudable accomplishment to live well in uncertainty, than ever it is to wait until everything is fine before treating oneself like a loved human being.
Sage advice I have kept close.
