This really gets to the crux of why, when we’re in the midst of a funk, we feel like it will last forever, and yet it inevitably passes. When we imagine the future, we think we will always feel the way we do at that moment, but we do not imagine all the life events that will keep us from sitting in our room and brooding 24/7. The vast majority of minds cannot ruminate on the same thing indefinitely. Life goes on and takes us along with it.

“This too shall pass,” is one of the most useful bits of wisdom to which I cling. I sometimes say…
If things are going badly, be patient, they will change.
If things are going well, be patient, they will change.
