A Thought

For some reason I've recently begun noticing how people (myself included) tend to react strongly to things, especially external things outside our direct control.

The thing to remember is, life is simply a series of impermanent events.

Some are pleasant, some are unpleasant.

That's all.

  3. Your father was correct.

    We cannot control the circumstances in our lives. We can, however, control our reactions to them. It's a choice.

    And yes, it is far easier to say than do; especially when your world seems to be falling apart around you.
