Tears of happiness likes to show.”

People who’re trustworthy, don’t say ‘Trust me’*,
People who aren’t, say often ‘Trust me’.
*they let their actions speak

“Autumn, a woman dressed in variety.”
“There are many things in this world about which we can’t do much. In that instance, we have no other choice but to do what we can.”
- From Shark (상어 / Sangeo), Korean Drama.
Whenever I read a post about people worrying, I want to share this. I used to worry a lot, but it was just a waste of time. Like Jesus said if somebody slaps your right side of the face, show’em your left side. When worries bothered me, I had this approach, all I said was next worry, it didn’t bother me at all after that approach. Like Buddha said both sadness and happiness are temporary. The worries we have say ten years ago or even ten days ago are no longer around (same with happiness incidents). If something bothers us we should welcome it, they’re a teaching moment (or what the Hindus think that it’s a penance for our past mistakes, the future will be less burdensome), when it comes around the next time, it won’t be a bother at all. Thus, there’re two choices when something worries us, either we let it take over us and do nothing or do something and give the best in things we can like the quote says above or do what the Greek philosopher Epictetus said in Discourses:
“…we should act as we do in the case of a voyage. What can I do? I can choose the master of the ship, the sailors, the day, the opportunity. Then comes a storm. What more have I to care for? for my part is done. The business belongs to another — the master. But the ship is sinking — what then have I to do? I do the only things that I can, not to be drowned full of fear, nor screaming, nor blaming God, but knowing that what has been produced must also perish: for I am not an immortal being, but a man, a part of the whole, as an hour is a part of the day: I must be present like the hour, and past like the hour. What difference, then, does it make to me how I pass away, whether by being suffocated or by a fever, for I must pass through some such means?”
Like the Koreans say “Hwaiting” or “Fighting” just keep fighting, worries have no chance with the strong You.
