Our judgment of things is the source of all our suffering.
The newspaper headline – “Democrats Win!” is just ink on paper till someone reads it and assigns a meaning to it. Some people judge it as a wonderful thing, some horrible, and many are apathetic about it. But it has no meaning except for the one we give it.
“We are disturbed not by things that happen, but by our opinion of the things that happen.” – Epictetus
If we change the way we look at things … the things we look at change.
