“The true man is revealed in difficult times. So when trouble comes, think of yourself as a wrestler whom God, like a trainer, has paired with a tough young buck. For what purpose? To turn you into Olympic-class material. But this is going to take some sweat to accomplish. From my perspective, no one’s difficulties ever gave him a better test than yours, if you are prepared to make use of them the way a wrestler makes use of an opponent in peak condition.”
~ Epictetus from Discourses
Every difficulty in your life is an opportunity.
Practice better response.
Practice maintaining your inner equanimity.
Practice quelling your emotions.
