Beautiful.

Many concepts I’m interested in exploring —“the tension between acceptance and hope.”

Why is it that our medical system so often encourages acceptance over hope, at the expense of the possibility of recovering?!

Inspired today by this Nietzsche quote, from ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Viktor E. Frankl

“When we can no longer change our circumstances, we are challenged to change ourselves.”

I had written down in a note from a mentor around a year before watching this, to read this book, and so I finally ordered it and read it. Compelling.
