Somehow these quotes work together

From “Love Hurts: Buddhist Advice for the Heartbroken” by Lodro Rinzler –

“Heartbreak isn’t just pain and suffering. There’s also an opportunity to take what you learned with you, and apply it so you grow in all sorts of ways. You may end up learning that you are constantly changing, and your ego isn’t as tight as you think it is, and that you can actually relax some of that “what if” thinking and become comfortable with the way things are. Those sorts of lessons strike me as incredibly valuable.”

And from “On the Threshold of Transformation: Daily Meditations for Men” by Richard Rohr

“You cannot declare yourself important; any attempt to do so is delusional, even though many try. The problem we try so hard to solve is already completely solved, and most of us don’t even know it. We are searching for what we already have.”
