The ability to pay attention to the present moment with open, non-judmental awarenss is a skill anyone one can learn with practice. Much of our suffering comes from being lost in anxieties about the future or regrets about the past.
People also get "hooked" by their own attachments and expections about things being a certain way, and this too can cause suffering.
If any of this resonates for you, we can investigate together.
Often people get anxious about their anxiety, depressed about their depression, angry at their anger, etc. It is often this second layer of experiencing that exascerbates our discomfort. It is possible to learn to see this second layer, and let it go, so that distress is reduced. Imagine that.
