Don't believe everything that you think!
Obviously you can’t change your entire worldview every time you drop an ice cream cone (and some events will always be devastating), but some small tweaks to your belief system can help you manage the bad events better. For example, accepting that you’ll be okay if someone breaks up with you, or understanding that failure is necessary and not something you have to fear. Sometimes life sucks, but how you think about the bad times matters just as much as what you do about it.
