Problems are forever and we can’t avoid them. You’ll wake up tomorrow and have problems for breakfast. You’ll jump on the train and read a problem in your email inbox. You’ll get to the office and get a problem smack bang in your pretty face!
From minor challenges to major crises, stress is part of life. And while you can't always control your circumstances, you can control how you respond to them.

Logic is the systematic study of the form of valid inference and the most general laws of truth. A valid inference is one where there is a specific relation of logical support between the assumptions of the inference and its conclusion. In ordinary discourse, inferences may be signified by words such as therefore, hence, ergo, and so on.
Wouldn’t it be great if negative thoughts came with warning signs reading, “It’s only a negative thought, you don’t have to believe it if you don’t want to?” Unfortunately, negatives don’t come like that. They come disguised as real problems, quietly slipping in when we’re not paying attention.

We’ve all had the experience of being triggered by something that creates a sudden and intense emotional response within us.

It’s a feeling that’s evoked within you.
