Handling Adversity

Why is it that two people can be subjected to the same adversity, but each will view it differently? One may prosper because of it, while the other is devastated.

Which person are you?

I am a firm believer that although we may not have control over the feelings that come over us, we can control how we handle those feelings. Some people may choose to allow the problem to dwell in their mind and even push them into depression . While others choose to take control of the situation and not allow themselves to be a victim. These people think of the problem as a way to learn and be a better person because of it. They choose to stop thinking about the past and instead plan and work towards the future they really want and deserve. Which person are you? You are in control. You decide.
