Control The Narrative Of Your Life
Change what you can control, let go of what you can’t and expect unfairness, difficulties and pain. Everything in your life is your responsibility, and what makes a negative occurrence bad is how you deal with it, not the thing itself.
Accepting full responsibility rids you of excuses and lets you associate the issues of life with your inability to deal with them. It’s important not to be too hard on yourself, but this association leads to proactivity.
