“Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.” — Benjamin Franklin

Anytime one’s internal state is dependent on external factors, one’s emotional state becomes a slave to circumstances.

A key to lasting happiness (like inner peace and a stress-free life) is in not placing control of one’s happiness in other people’s possession.

If you can’t control it, don’t anchor your emotional state to it.

“Inner Peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”
