In the face of a predicament, the first inclination is to complain to others as we suffer from it. Defining your unjust situation to others and the unfairness of it all will never help to resolve it. We should know this as a certainty, but we still continue to wastefully do so.

In life there will be a continual changing of circumstances that are either good or bad for us. It is what we do as a continual learner to address the change that matters most. It is ours to determine for ourselves to suffer dearly from or to simply deal with for our betterment.

As predicaments occur, think first to comprehend the reality of it. If you choose to suffer from it, you will. If you choose to ignore it, it won’t go away. If you choose with optimism to learn from the real lessons of the predicament, you will have chosen a better path.

“Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of obligations of life and death. But change is the law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.” — Socrates —
