giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,
our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.

Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

and the experiences of others may inspire you,
ultimately it will be the choices you discover
and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.

Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love
or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.

However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
