The Equation of Pain

Every day of our lives is
calculated by a set of choices
that equate to
our resulting personality.

Things happen to us
and what counts is
not those circumstances
but how we react to them.

People do not cause us pain;
we choose to let them hurt us.

And if the pain is unavoidable,
it should be used
as a catalyst to change.

We can either
become a better person
or a bitter person
because of how we are treated.

We grow or shrivel;
there are only two options
so choose to let life mature you.
