Listen to Maria More, weekdays from 10am-2pm, at 10:35 for the Midday Motivation. Today’s quote:
“Suffering is optional.”
What does that mean? Simply put, you only suffer as long as you allow yourself to. A lot of times, our sadness or suffering is the result of what someone else has said or done to us. And I admit, these are things that we cannot control, however, we can control how long we allow it to happen.
You can’t control other people’s actions, but you can control your response. Suffering is optional.
