This is a good reminder (especially for teens!).
Sometimes our emotions DO get the best of us, causing us to lose sight of those things that really do matter. It’s all about perspective.
This parenting quote reminds me of another famous quote:
“Life is 10 percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”
Sometimes when I’m having a bad day I go and watch a show like “Intervention,” “Dr. Phil,” or even the news…it’s only then that I realize how petty my problems really are!
