The World Will Suck Less If You Change Yourself!

You can’t change people or situations, you can only change how you react to them.

All your life you are going to meet people who will say hurtful things, do pathetic things (some that are unpardonable) and you will also find yourself in situations unpleasant and gross.You can’t change any of that because how people behave is not within your control.The only thing that you can control is your reaction to people and events.

We all think of changing the world but we hardly ever think of changing ourselves.

Change the way you look at things…

As they say – if you don’t like a thing, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. The world will suck a little less.
Sometimes you have to let go of everything you are clinging to and start over.

We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way, all the time. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can change is our attitude. We are in charge of our attitudes because life is probably 50% of what happens to us and 50% of how we react to it.

To quote Rumi: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
