Keep your mood stable and live your life calmly and happily.

as John Milton said:
"A man is better than a king if he can control his emotions, desires and fears."
A person's greatest ability is emotional stability.
emotional instability is a disaster

Confucius said: "the benevolent enjoy the mountain, and the wise enjoy the water." Benevolent people are kind-hearted, have a calm character, and do not have frequent joys and sorrows because of trifles.
Confucius traveled around the world after the age of 50, lobbying kings to accept his own Confucianism, in exchange for a lot of confusion and ridicule.
when Confucius was in the State of Zheng, Confucius met a hermit who laughed at Confucius and said, "it is like a dog lost at home."
after hearing this, Confucius just gladly replied, "Yes!" Alas! " And then turned over the matter.
when he was left behind, Confucius smiled with a mind as calm as a Confucian mountain and did not get angry. With such a state of mind, no wonder he could have a rare life in troubled times.
Laozi said, "the good is like water, and all things in water conservancy do not dispute, and do what people hate, so it is almost better than Tao."
Water is amorphous and easy to flow. Water will not be entangled in the gains and losses of one place at a time, but change its own form, adapt to different environments, become a cup of tea, ascend to heaven into clouds, and fall to the ground for rain.
as the saying goes, "the weak is as irritable as a tiger, and the strong is as calm as water". If people can live like water and face everything without anxiety or impatience, that is the most ideal state.
Life always encounters unpleasant things. Instead of being happy for a while and venting randomly, it is better to learn to control your emotions before you can live a comfortable life in this world.

it was just a few steps to wake up the person next to his wife, and the nouveau riche realized that he was his mother.
