STOP AND THINK – Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy. (Wayne Dyer, American motivational speaker and author)

How often have we blamed someone else for our unhappiness? He said something that hurt me, or she treated me unfairly. Whether it’s a co-worker, someone in line at the grocery store, or even a friend—can they really be the cause for our sour state of mind? We need to recognize that, ultimately, we alone are responsible for our attitudes and emotions.

You were taught . . . to be made new in the attitude of your minds. (Ephesians 4:22-23)
