End dependence

If you depend on some particular thing, or person, or situation for your happiness and fulfillment, you’re setting yourself up for problems. When you depend on what you cannot control, you open the door to fear, anxiety, disappointment and other negative experiences.

However, the world outside of you can indeed provide your life with great richness. So although you don’t want to be dependent on it, you don’t want to ignore it either.

A powerful way to end dependence is with acceptance. Instead of depending on what you cannot control, peacefully accept and celebrate the goodness in whatever comes your way.

By choosing to accept life as it is, you can benefit from its richness without being imprisoned by dependence. Acceptance puts you in control of your own happiness and fulfillment.

Acceptance frees you to enjoy each moment for what it is, without being burdened by worries about what might or might not come next. Acceptance enables you to be more responsible and effective in following your own uniquely beautiful path to fulfillment.

Accept life’s richness in all its many forms, and gently let go of the dependence that would bring you down. End your dependence, and free yourself to live with authentic joy and fulfillment.
