    Acceptance

    I guess everything happens for a reason whether we like it or not. I came to term with the fact that I need to accept the things I can not change instead dwelling on it. It is healthier and better.

    Somethings Cannot Change.

    Why worry about that

    which you can no longer change, the way I see it is if you can change it then try to accept it pointless hate accomplishes nothing. If something is in your way adapt and overcome.

    I've recently learned

    as well as discovered that there's no point in being upset over things that you have no control over. Just have faith. Let it go. It'll all work out on its own. It doesn't do you or anyone any good stressing over something that you have absolutely no control over. Just live.
