If you are undergoing a rough patch, try not to let the emotions affect you beyond a certain degree. Live it gracefully knowing it is not going to last forever, likewise when you are going through a good phase, it also doesn’t last forever. Good or bad, if you have done it once, you can do it again. If success cannot move you, how can failure ever; if acceptance does not affect you, how can rejection! Live like the lotus, in the world but above it. Only that what you let can affect you.
