How do you rise above something which is irritating the hell out of you?
Understanding and Forgiveness.
If we choose to hold on to something, and fight tooth and nail to retain it. Even the victory one may feel in obtaining it, is often overshadowed by the fear of losing it again.
However, If you choose to allow into your life the things that come your way, never holding on too tightly. You can live your life without fear of losing, and instead feel gratitude for what you have, when you have it and feel joy.
