In Buddhism it is understood that we are all the masters of our lives and it’s we that create our own suffering. We suffer because we attach ourselves to things, people, situations and events.
When we are forced to let go of the things we’ve attached ourselves to, we become upset because we feel that we have lost something of value.
What we need to learn as people is that it doesn’t serve our higher interests to attach ourselves to anything.
Nothing is permanent, nothing is set in stone and we should never expect to be in the possession of anything for eternity.
The more we let go of expectations, the less we attach to things, the freer and happier we can be with our day to day situations.
