We all have times in our lives when it seems like very little is within our control. This is especially true when bad things happen. It’s a frustrating and helpless feeling.
We do have power though, in every situation. We have the power to choose our response. We can focus on being mad at someone: ourselves, our parents, other people, the world. Or we can stop blaming and start reframing through mindfulness. This video from Change to Chill explains that while, “You can’t control your circumstances, you can choose how you react,” and that choice can make a big difference in how you feel.
