THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT: “The opposite of love isn’t hate – it’s indifference” – from the Arlo & Janis comic strip, of all places.
LAST NIGHT I saw the movie My Blind Brother starring Nick Kroll, Adam Scott and Jenny Slate. Its a bittersweet romantic comedy about two brothers who both fall in love for the same girl. Scott plays Robbie who is blind; Kroll plays Robbie’s brother Bill. Robbie is an over-achieving egocentric jerk (most of the time) who revels in the adoration his athletic exploits (running marathons, swimming) to benefit charities gets him. Bill’s life is going nowhere; he’s Robbie’s sighted guide for the races and training and is pretty much ignored. They both fall in love with Rose, played by Slate. She’s got her own life issues which is why she first meets Bill, and how she ends up with Robbie. It’s not in any kind of wide-release but worth viewing when you see it in Redbox or streaming soon.
IT’S NOT EASY to put into practice Radical Acceptance. It should be so easy to just…radically accept that you have to do it, right?
IT’S ALSO NOT EASY to remind myself that my life is great, living and regretting the past takes up far too much energy and I have more in my life, and more to offer, than I ever have before.
I ALSO NEED to lean about and practice the Relaxation Response.
