We do not get to choose our thoughts, yet we still try. There are plenty of things within and
outside our lives that we do not control or choose. Our minds and hearts have their needs,
and they need to be moved or nourished but only to an extent where it does not lead to our
emotional suffering.

You may begin to dwell on your disappointments or flaws, regardless of whether they are large or small. At that point, you may advance to think about your defeats, and that you’re not equipped to deal with progress.
