A is for attitude
You’re not always in control of what happens to you, but you’re always in control of how you react to it.
Our attitude is a choice. You might think you would have fared better in another time or somewhere else, but no matter when or where you would be you’d still be you, viewing the world with the perspective you’ve chosen.
Rose tinted glasses or false positivity is not a long term solution, but maybe there’s a perspective you could find that would serve you the best. A useful one that helps you to add value to the world.
