We can’t control what happens to us but we do have choice about what we do next.
Yes. I can't control what is happening, or what will happen that is outside my control in the outside world, but I do have a choice about how to respond. The first choice might very well be how i choose to respond to the automatic response that comes up in me. Judging this response will not be helpful, but paradoxically, accepting my response-whatever it may be-can help me to then make another choice towards where I want to be and how I want to be.
