5 Quotes for Coping with Things You Can’t Control

1. Today, use frustration and disappointment to motivate you rather than annoy you. Breathe and be mindful. You are in control of the way you respond to life.

2. It’s not what you broadcast to everyone else that determines the trajectory of your life; it’s what you whisper to yourself behind closed doors that has the greatest power and influence.

3. Some people will never understand, and it’s not your job to teach or change them. Prioritize your peace.Learning to let go of certain expectations and detach from certain people, are two of the great paths to inner peace.

4. Your worth is not dependent on someone else’s ability to be kind and loving. Accept this, and start acknowledging your own worth. Stop waiting for others to tell you how important you are. Tell yourself today, and believe it.

5. The goal this year is to gradually change your response to what you can’t control. To grow stronger on the inside, so that almost nothing on the outside can affect your inner peace and wellness without your conscious permission.

The bottom line is, despite the real world challenges you face, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will have to personally overcome is your own mind. In other words, you aren’t responsible for everything that happens to you, but you ARE responsible for undoing the self-defeating thinking and behavioral patterns that these undesirable experiences create.
