When things don’t go well, we want and expect it to get over asap.
But when everything is going great guns in life, we feel we are entitled to our success, and in denial of its temporary nature.
If something goes badly, we may say it’s not our fault.
But would we attribute our success also to something outside our control?
If the source of failure can be outsourced, then why not the same treatment for success?
Both success and failure are nothing but meaningless labels in the cyclicality that is life.
The only thing we control is our own reaction to these external eventualities. If we choose to give up control of that also, then only peace remains.
