In anyone’s lifetime, there’s going to be a lot of things that seem out of your control but that’s ok. As long as you’re able to let these things go instead of fighting them they won’t have any power over you. It’s often hard to do this when something unfair is happening to you but you need to take a step back and realize that getting angry isn’t going to solve your problems but is only gonna make you feel worse. Though you can’t always make things turn out the way you want them to, you’ll always be able to choose how you react to them, and that’s all that really matters. You can either make yourself miserable by focusing on the negatives or you can make the most of it, by trying to learn from it and grow as a person.
