Scope of Questions

I received the following inquiry regarding hexagram 56 – the Wanderer:

  • The user’s question is: “What I can do to enjoy my life?”
    She describes her overall situation as follows: “I cannot bear disharmony with other people, it paralyzes my life force and makes me feel deeply depresses.

I would really love to develop something like self love.”
