1. Let go of anger. When we erupt in anger we often feel much worse. Hence, it’s better to cool off and to work on staying calm.
2. When people treat you badly it’s rarely “about you”. More often it tells you how that person is feeling, or some other issue that is bothering them.

4. Enjoy the good times and savour every moment as life is a precious gift to be enjoyed.

Here. Exactly where you are.
This. Whatever it is you’re doing.
