Resistance creates stress

I quote from Dan Millman:
Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is... The only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds.

Resistance to events unfolding around you creates stress. Avoid stressing yourself out over things you cannot control. Concentrate on the areas that you can control.
