During stressful moments in life, remember to stop and ask yourself, “Where am I?”
This will help you keep a perspective on things and prevent you from sliding further down the trail of negative thinking.
You will be more easily able come to your senses, as you realize that the spiraling effect of negative thinking will only lead to morbid thoughts and dysfunction.
Furthermore, by staying focused on the higher purpose of life, you will be able to transcend the bitterness and suffering of the moment and stay with joy.
Life is too precious to waste or shorten by being depressed and sad.
