We shouldn't undermine our impact on others, what we do can significantly improve or crap on someone's life.

Most of his quotes are very religious, but I do agree with this one: “We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

Swindoll is a Christian Pastor. So, it's not surprising the things he says would be religious. [Being a Christian is not a bad thing Will.]

I didn't mean to give you that impression. I think he is a smart man, but I get more from this quote than many of the others that I read. ;)

It's strange but from hundreds of quotes I have seen and used to post to friends on SH , only a few have struck a chord with me and this is one of them.

Totally agree. Take the emotions out and your reaction will be much better received.

It's tough finding that balance between dealing with a situation calmly and it coming across as apathy at times (think)

That guy is surfing a 100 ft wave according to the writeup. :)

That's very possible.There are about 5 areas where the waves can get as high as 100 feet. Jaws/Peahi Maui, Teahupoo Tahiti, Costes banks. Mavericks, Santa Cruz and Nazare Portugal. <iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/d...M?ecver=1" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Definitely so Ser, I also probably spend 10% of my life feeling sorry for myself and 90% of my life just cracking on with it. 乂º◡º乂

Oh I let my emotions get the best of me most of the time and I know this and it is something that I am working really hard on. I am trying to talk things through instead of getting pissed, walking away, hiding, breaking something or burning something to a crisp. Not an easy task but I am getting there. 🦋

There are moments I let online people get to me and then I remember I'm an idiot for caring, and it stops.
