Before I begin I'd like to say thanks for this forum being available, and existing.
I was down, but remembered. Life is boring. Life is unfair. But why is it boring? Why is it unfair? Because I don't want to sit here at work and stare. I want what I want.
Why is it unfair? Because I have to do so damn much when I get home! I don't want to do anything...ironically. That's what I do at work.
I didn't move onto step 3, which is detach or not want my wants. That day I simply accepted the truth. Life is boring because I can't do something else. Life is unfair because I can't do what I want.
I felt better. Simply accepting the truth.
I then remembered more Dharma and felt bad. I didn't remember this community. But when I did, I decided I should contribute this little story about me accepting the first noble truth, and it's cause the second noble truth.
It was also a thread where it was said "say a little something," and go with the middle path. It was a pleasant push.
Thanks for the push. Hope this finds you all well.
