The emotional equation of life

I recently came across an inspiring quote by T T Rangarajan. It goes along these lines.

Something that I don’t want happens — when I accept it, it becomes tolerance, when I don’t, it becomes anger. Consider some examples:

Example If I accept it, it becomes… If I don’t, it becomes…
I’m about to encounter uncertainty … adventure … fear
Someone has something I don’t, or is able to produce results I’m not able to … inspiration … jealousy
Someone has hurt me … forgiveness … hatred

Any event when handled with non-acceptance becomes a negative emotion. When handled with acceptance becomes a positive emotion.

And there you go. There’s the emotional equation of life.
