I have learnt to control my emotions to a great extent over the years, and even when I am stressed by some people or situations, it is for a short while. At least I think so. But I want to overcome those short durations also, so I keep a list of quotes to refer to whenever I am slightly depressed, stressed or in bad mood. The cause of my stress-people or situations can be linked to one or more quotes. And these quotes act as my mentors at such times.
Sharing the quotes here, maybe you can also be helped, specially if your mental state is like mine. Just maybe.

I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person does not guarantee that others will be good people too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be a as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.
The best is yet to come.
If you don’t fight for what you want, don’t cry for what you lost.
