If I allow bitterness and resentment to fester inside, it will make my relationships guarded and unsatisfying. The more I close down to others, the more I become a stranger to myself. By letting go of sorrow and negativity, I can keep my nature open and loving. Remaining open to life, with its constant adventures and opportunities to grow, is the only way to reach my full potential. Life’s challenges Life’s challenges are like house guests – they come and they leave. So, the next time a challenge comes your way, remember: they will also go away. And when house guests leave your home, you wouldn’t let them take everything from your home, would you? In the same way, when challenges leave, don’t let life’s challenges take away your happiness. Why? Happiness is your property. It always remains with you. No matter what happens, don’t let anything take your happiness away from you.
