The only things you can control in this world are your attitudes and your effort. You have little or no say over the craziness of your colleagues, boss, the government, or your family, but you can take charge of your own actions and how you interact with others. As a thinking adult, your outlook on life is managed by you, not by others, although they will try hard to do so. Don’t let them. You are your own boss in this matter, so be a good one.
