An old man selling porcelain bowls was walking along the road carrying a pole.
Suddenly a porcelain bowl fell to the ground and broke, but the old man kept walking forward without turning his head.
When a passersby saw it, he felt strange and asked: “Why is your bowl broken and you don’t look at it?”
The old man replied, “No matter whether I look back or not, the bowl is still broken.”
The image is from Berry Thoughtful Life.
Learn to accept and let go of what you have lost. Things will not come back because of your grief, and you can’t change the result.
Let bygones be bygones, and your life will be free of burden.
