Key Lesson

Blaming someone else for your gloomy day is like resenting the TV weatherman because it's cold and rainy outside.

Summary

Suffering doesn't prove that someone else is wrong. What it does prove is you will go to any lengths, including self-destruction, to prove that you are right.

~~~

Instead of always asking yourself why doesn't so-and-so see how wrong they are, learn to ask Is what I'm feeling about that person right now good for me? Or them?

~~~

See the upset not as an exterior circumstance to be remedied, but rather as an interior condition to be understood.

~~~

Instead of always asking yourself why so-and-so acts this or that way, learn to ask What's inside of me that wants to hurt itself over how anyone else acts?
