Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. – Virginia Satir
root of all evil
Our expectations about life and people are the real problem. When people don’t behave as we expect them to or when life doesn’t turn out as we desire, we throw a tantrum. Our false expectations, in other words, cause us to suffer.
Only when we adopt the stoic quality to accept life as it is can we begin to find the peace that we deserve. Our reaction to life is in our hands. Our reactions, our attitude, our perceptions and assumptions are directly tied to how we experience life. Design them and we’re able to control our level of happiness. It’s simple to understand but hard to practice. But practice we must!
