Change

Thought for the day:

The first step toward change is acceptance. 

Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. 

That's all you have to do. 

Change is not something you do, it's something you allow.

Will Garcia

Amen to that!But, are you willing to do that? You want the world, the people, everyone around you to change...you wish that they would come around to your level of thinking,so that you could always be correct. If they don't, if someone disagrees, you don't feel like talking to them, you think they're against you, you lose your temper or you sulk or you start shouting and soon, it's a mud-slinging competition going on.

Which is why, I usually(No, it's not possible for me also all the time) try to put myself in the other's person's shoes and understand why he or she is saying something, instead of flying into a blue funk and vitiating the atmosphere all round. Try it- it will work, I guarantee..and, forget others-you'll be increasing your life span..the less the anger, the irritation,the bad words, the better your life will be.Change yourself-that's the difficult part.The rest will be easy.(Pun intended)
