Why you should not be UNHAPPY about Donald Trump, US Govt, our current cultural and political problems...
"You can build up your strength to the point where you are not influenced by your surroundings; in fact, you can influence the surroundings instead. You can change the environment if you have the strength of mind; but even if your mind isn't that strong, you can still have the strength not to be affected by the environment.
Learning not to be affected is an important step. If you were influenced by a situation, how can you change it? If 15 people are crying and you go there and join them in the crying, you're simply added one more miserable person; you have not done anything to benefit people. Instead, if you're really strong and can maintain your own equanimity, all 15 people will be benefited by your strength."
Don't give your power or peace of mind away. To anyone! Retain positivity and don't engage in negative conversation!
