Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course.
Amor Fati what?? Wait wait wait, don’t worry. Latin in involved, but it’s easy and useful.
Let’s translate : amor fati says “love of fate”.
Wikipedia “Amor Fati” : It is used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one’s life, including suffering and loss, as good or, at the very least, necessary, in that they are among the facts of one’s life and existence, so they are always necessarily there whether one likes them or not.
And in fact, you’ll find all kinds of “shades” about “accepting reality”, in literature, in reality, in books :
If you’re an amputee after an accident, you can go from terrible distress to grey resignation to “what do I do, now”, to… you know where I’m going, right ? Aren’t we all fascinated by people who blossom AFTER a terrible event?
It’s just an example, but you got me : Amor Fati contains Amor : “one sees everything that happens in one’s life, including suffering and loss, as good or, at the very least, necessary“. Of course, it’s not “necessary”, but, as says Shakespeare, you can embrace it, though.
Seeing life as a Tango, a continuous creative almost oriental dance, is just a thing that we can consider. It is certainly not resignation, but the love of what is given to us. Even if it’s hard. Use this tool with a combination of Propensity, and… you’ll see!
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart
