Swift Measures for Life’s Inevitable Challenges
For as long as we are in the cycle of impure life, we cannot avoid unpleasant, difficult situations and a certain amount of physical discomfort, but by training our mind to look at frustrating situations in a more realistic manner, we can free ourself from a lot of unnecessary mental suffering.

We do not need to become unhappy just because things do not go our way.
