I believe the words in the picture above just says it all.
Life is not happening to you. it's responding to you.
Study its responses and embrace it for acceptance of a job well done or a sign for personal change.
How you act to it is how it will react to you.
Reminds me of those times I've heard people say, they don't know why others hurt them so much.
In a similar way, this is the answer.
How others treat you is usually their reaction to what you act on them.
