"When we are troubled, we may think that our pain will last forever. Peace of mind appears to be gone for good, and the fact that we have faced and conquered problems in the past is forgotten.
Overcoming suffering gives us strength. Our burdens today may seem greater than any we have ever faced, but so is our ability to deal with them. We learn that when we can do nothing more to improve a situation, there is a process in which we can trust absolutely: to let go and let God.
If we find that we can neither change nor accept a certain reality, we let it go for now, knowing that it is the first step in overcoming our misery."
