Everyone has challenges and obstacles in their life. Family and friends may or may not understand you or be able to support you. Sometimes the person closest to you is the source of conflict. How do you do you stop the pity party when life feels out of control?
The Art of Doing Nothing
We live in a “go hard or go home” culture. The art of doing nothing must be honed over time. Not everyone can do it right away. But it is a worthwhile skill to develop.
Dirty Feet & the Opinion of Others
The main thing to know is often our biggest critics are unhappy in their own lives, and misery loves company. Or our biggest critics are envious and jealous that we have large and small successes. The Ghandi quote means do not focus on the haters. Do not focus on people who are constantly negative.

In this life there are many messages about perseverance, determination, going the long haul and more. But sometimes, you also need to know when to let go of people and situations. There is a difference between fighting the good fight and endless knocking on a closed door.
