When reality refuses to agree with our worldview it can be very dangerous to our psyche.
We have to adjust our thinking to match reality.
The idea that you’re capable of doing anything you set your mind to is totally false. There are things you can’t do, no matter how hard you try. And there are times when circumstances will block you.
The main thing is that you don’t talk yourself out of doing something important just because it’s difficult to do. There are times to keep pushing and there are times to surrender.
