  1. I’ve also seen this expressed this way: 2 arrows – the first is the actual event and the second is our rumination on the event. We suffer more for the second arrow.

    “The second arrow, fired by our own selves, is our reaction, our storyline, and our anxiety. All these things magnify the suffering. Many times, the ultimate disaster we’re ruminating upon hasn’t even happened. – Thich Nhat Hanh”

    If anyone is interested, the idea is fleshed out here: http://www.soberbuddha.com/thich-nhat-hanh-second-arrow/
