“You can't control the wind, but you can adjust your sails.”
You cannot control the world. You cannot control people. You cannot control your environment.
But you can control how you react and respond to them all. You get to say how you feel. You get to say how you think. You get to say what you do. Only you.
People often live as if they are not in control of their emotions. Because it often seems like your emotions happen in response to the outside world.
But if you look at it, what is really happening is you make up a story, or a meaning, or a point of view about what is happening, and that is what controls your emotions.
Many of us often live as if that story, or meaning is true. But it isn’t. It is only one point of view, one way of looking at it, one story.
Don’t like your emotions, change your story.
