“ Instead of treating events as wins or losses, ask “Did I learn something I can apply in the future?” If not, you must treat it as a loss. ”
That's the thing about lessons, you always learn them when you don't expect them or want them.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future too.
Learning to live joyfully with things you do not like is a huge lesson in life.
No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future.
I don't think anyone ever gets over anything in life; they merely get used to it.
