Don’t rush into grief or happiness when something happens to you. Something which looks like a subject of sorrow can turn into joy and, vice a versa, some seemingly happy event can bring grief. You should keep yourself to the utmost from judging and emotions in relation to what happens in your life. You should try to be independent from the external events, don’t rely on “good luck” and don’t feel down about something which looks like “bad luck”.
