BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, April 21st, 2014 by Dan Millman in EVERYDAY ENLIGHTENMENT

“Some of us center our lives around other people’s feelings; we try to make them happy. But since you can’t control your feelings, how can you possibly fix the feelings of others? The plain truth is that feeling responsible for someone else’s happiness (or unhappiness) is simply not realistic.

No longer feeling responsible for the feelings of others, you can come to fully accept them rather than react TO them. If you are to accept your own emotions as natural, you need to accept everyone else’s emotions as well. Their emotions, whether calm or stormy, are their affair.”

Dan Millman, in “Everyday Enlightenment”
