We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. – Charles R. Swindoll

Just because you can’t bear reality, doesn’t mean you should argue with it. Just think about our existence in this universe. We were born billions of years after it started to exist, and we will be dead and long forgotten before it ends. The conditions that allowed us to live this amazing life were created in a distant past beyond our comprehension through forces we can’t measure and understand. The sooner we accept these facts  and come to terms with it, the sooner we may be able to live a proper life with a healthy perspective.

That doesn’t mean life is meaningless or without a purpose. It means humanity only counts in the immediate present. Your opinion. Your objections. They have no effect. Nobody keeps a giant Kindle filled with that record. What you have is in front of you. What you have is what happens.

That’s all you got. That’s all you control. Focus on that.
