... remember that the world has also been generous to you.
If you can read and understand these words, that means you:
- have access to electricity, a computer or phone, and the internet
- have free time to peruse articles
- can read and speak one of the most useful languages in the world
Take time to appreciate how lucky you are to be in your situation - this should make you feel better.
Remember: We can't choose what happens to us but we can choose our reaction to what happens to us.
"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."
- Viktor E. Frankl, Holocaust Survivor and Author of Man's Search for Meaning
