 When living out our daily lives, it’s often easy to blame the world for our problems. While it’s true that there are things in the outside world we can’t control, the biggest difference between two people is simply their reaction towards it. Having understood this for a while, I’ve often asked the question, “How?”
在日常生活中,我们很容易因为自身的问题而去责怪这个世界。然而外面世界确实有很多我们无法控制的事情,两个人之间最大的区别就是他们对这个事情简单的反应。暂时明白发生了什么,我经常会问一个问题,“怎么?”(我是根据下面这个句子翻译成怎么的,还是觉得略奇怪

 

How is it possible to change your reaction to a particular event or situation?
怎么可能为了一个特殊的事件或者情形改变你的反应呢?

 

Why should you stop complaining? Here are three reasons that I believe—if you truly understand them—will help you move forward and live a less stressful life:
你为什么要停止抱怨呢?我相信这三个原因——如果你真正的理解他们——会帮助你不断向前,生活的压力也会随之减少。

 

1. The world owes you nothing
这个世界不欠你什么

 

The world really does have nothing to do with you or anyone else. The planet will continue to exist without you on it, which—as depressing as it sounds—should also provide you with a first glimpse of the reality of what your life should truly be about.
这个世界真的与你或其他任何人无关。地球没有你照样转,这句话——就像它听起来一样令人沮丧——也给你看第一眼你生活中真正的现实。

 

Through this, questions start to emerge such as: “If the world is irrelevant, who’s in charge of my life?” And, “What happens to my life from this point forward?”
通过这个,问题开始浮现,例如:“如果这个世界毫无联系,谁是我们生活的主宰?”还有,“从那时起我的生活又会发生什么?”

 

You suddenly start to realize that while we were nurtured and looked after as kids, this really isn’t the case once we’re an adult. The world doesn’t provide us with the same blanket of comfort as our careers once did, which only means one thing: It’s up to us to provide that blanket for ourselves and no one else. Which brings me on to the second reason…
你突然开始意识到当我们像孩子一样被养育和照顾的时候,一旦我们成人这就真的不是这种情况了(原本是把once翻译成曾经,后来觉得一旦比较合适,但现在这个版本个人还是觉得不够好,有好的请尽管提出~这个世界不会给我们提供同样舒适的毛毯就像我们的职业曾经提供给我们的那样(我是觉得有点冗长了。。这仅意味着一件事:它取决于我们提供给我们自己的毛毯而不是别人。这让我想到了第二个原因。
