Trinity Posted October 8, 2014 Report Share Posted October 8, 2014 Some people seem to sail through life not being touched by adversity. And, on the surface it might seem they are the lucky ones to have no turmoil. But, realistically everyone has turmoil and strife and there is no way to avoid this. The only thing you can do is frame your reaction to this stress in a way so as to change how your internal view perceives it. For instance, if you miss out on a job opportunity due to illness or competition or are faced with a job task that is unpleasant, you can choose to learn from it rather than feeling bitter at it. With the missed opportunity, you could choose a different path (giving yourself options) such as by continuing your education so that when another opportunity comes up, you will be ready. If you have a task to do that you don't like, you could allow yourself to see the best points, rather than focusing on the worst. Life adversity is often beyond our control so the only thing we control is how we react to it. FrankM86 and Athena 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
