“The reason we trouble ourselves is because we prioritise one thought over another. And that former one is usually a source of negativity and hypothetical scenarios that may never even play out.

She looked at him silent.
He was right. But she was too stubborn to admit it.
He gazed into her eyes transmitting a calmness that radiated from the depths of his soul. Even his breathing held a tranquil rhythm. She could feel the serenity soothing her. How could she remain angry at him? And for no apparent reason.
“There are so many problems in the world. Serious ones. We don’t need to create more with our minds”, he said opening up his arms to embrace her in a forget-it-all-and-let-it-go hug.
Still she said nothing.
But she smiled, and her eyes lit up.
She loved him for this. For being able to comprehend her mood swings and loving her regardless.
