how to find peace in life and overcome self pity


I guess this is a forum about marriage issues but my thing is interrelated to being married and in a place in my life where I feel frustration so I thought I would post here. So here is the thing: How do you overcome self pity in life? How do you find peace?

I had a chance to make my life go a certain way but with several decisions I made which had a ripple effect I have ended up somwhere where I am not progressing and flourishing in my career. I can still do it (still young, no children) but I dont know if it would be worth it at this stage in my life because it needs me to go where I can find work which means away from my spouse. So I need to let it go and let it slip away so I can find peace at where I am right now. How do I do that?

Should one in life give oneself the priority, do things one needs to fullfill oneself professionally or should one sacrifice it and make do with what is available so that one can devote time and energy to the relationship?

Meditation can help you find some inner peace, and that may make decisions about your future easier to make.

In my case, it was very helpful in seeing my dysfunctional relationship for what it was, and that made the decision to leave it clearer and easier.

Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
