Life Is A Kind Of Chess
This is so in real life. Our psychological and emotional well being depends on how much we understand that we're the ones responsible to control our own feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. "Nonresponsibility" by blaming or passing on to others the moves we need to make is a favorite pastime! I believe, if one who is in therapy or great distress can establish the thinking that he's responsible for anything that happens or does not happen in his life, then he begins to go far on his journey.
Study how you move, how you feel and think, and what you do. See every defeat as an opportunity for growth. Focus on things that will help you win and reach your goals for balance and well being.
"Life is a kind of Chess, with struggle, competition, good and ill events." (Benjamin Franklin)
