Too this, too that. Theatrical, but moving. Might bring tears.
Watching Jade Beall’s TED talk on body hatred recalled for me the general problem of human suffering described by John Koller in Asian Philosophies (2007, p. 9, fifth edition):
Two fundamentally different approaches to the problem of suffering are possible. Both approaches recognize that suffering is the result of a gap between what one is and has, and what one wants to be and wants to have. The solution to the problem seems obvious: what is and what is desired must be made identical.
But how can this identity be achieved? One approach to the solution is to try to attain what one desires. […] The second approach consists in adjusting one’s desires to what one has.
I especially like the phrase, “what is and what is desired.”
Grasp or let go.
