Sometimes life serves us a cup. When the cup is sweet, we drink and we feel justified. Ahhh, I deserved that!
But when the cup is bitter, what then? Do we resist? Do we drink and swallow hard? There are answers to this question, but they are usually disguised or perceived as being religious. We need to address and accept the wisdom without having to join a church or align with someone else’s dogma. There is so much to be gained, and we would not need to run away from pain. Even Jesus asked that question before submitting to the Roman execution.
