When we expect others to lift us up we are bound to be let down. When we expect life to travel a certain destination we are bound to be let down. Truth is we have no control over anything. If we seek momentary bliss we will find ourselves right back at square one. Instead, we need to abandon all thoughts concerning outside influences. We must see the good that we hold. We must see that our happiness is the only thing that truly matters because in the end if we are miserable we will only see misery.
