Being human, the ability to manage our emotions and feelings well is key to happiness. Some people pray, meditate, while some take a glance at their vision board as a way to energise and reconnect to their life's purpose. Everyone have their own strategies that work for them.
Like it or not, we are solely responsible for our emotions and our internal states. If we surrender to the external forces, we will find ourselves in false bondage. It seems, we had lost our freedom as we gave up our personal choices, the only thing that separate us from the animals.
