"Emotional Health"

​ ...is our ability to cope with the inevitable losses/disappointments we experience throughout our lifetime...from the time we are born to the day we leave this world. Emotional success is working through all those various emotions (anger, sadness, fear, and/or guilt) that may be revealed through our disappointments…and conquering them.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
