When a person masters the ability to feel comfortable in all situations, he will never be disappointed with what life offers.
When we demand that our life situation be different than it presently is, we are demanding something that does not exist. This demanding is how we cause our own needless suffering.
If you are sincerely interested in guaranteeing a happy life, learn to accept what cannot be changed.
(Bayis Neaman, p.41; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.236)
