Change is the only constant

Change is the only constant. We have heard this before in our lives, from parents to elders to mentors to well wishers.

The Boss says "Go", Leader says "Lets Go". Which one are you? If you run, misery will follow you, rather stand up and it shall pass by. Control your anger, if you rise with anger you will fall with disgrace.

And lastly he sums it up, This is a passing phase...
