Don't hand control of your thoughts, actions or feelings over to difficult people or bad situations that bring you down.
Don't Help Them Hurt You.
Revolt and Rebel Against Letting Bad Things Control your Feelings. Refuse to Give Them the Power to Hurt You.
You have to deal with difficulties, you do not have have to let them distress or demoralize you, or defeat you mentally. We have to be at our best to perform our best.
It is important to emphasize this does NOT necessarily mean revolt or rebel against the situation itself which may or may not be in our best interests. We often have to smile and nod nicely in order to survive and thrive.
This DOES mean revolting and rebelling against giving giving bad things control of your feelings and the power to hurt you emotionally.
The next time difficulties arise, tell yourself, "I will deal with this difficulty in a time and place that is good for me. I am NOT giving it control of my feelings. I am NOT giving it the power to hurt me."
Rebelling against letting bad things destroy your happiness or dominate your attention is an important tool to creating a happy, successful life.
Worrying about problems is very different from solving or resolving them.
Happiness, like a kite, flies highest in stiff breezes when it is grounded in love, good values and important goals that keep it from being blown away.
