That's why when major bad-asses greet each other in movies, they don't say anything, they just nod. The nod means, 'I' am a bad-ass, and I recognize that you, too, are a bad-ass,' but they don't say anything because they're Wolverine and Magneto and it would mess up their vibe to explain.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
