We can't always control what happens to us. The only thing we can control is how we react to it.
Our earthly existence is but a fleeting moment in time, so anything that happens to you in this life is temporary. Remember that the next time something bad happens to you. Then choose to react with a positive attitude. Show self-control and be a positive example for those who are watching your actions.
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
