The ability to accept an unpleasant situation which cannot be changed, without getting angry or upset about it . Only a few people can grow to this level of nobleness, for to most of us acceptance of unwanted things is irksome and very much annoying .

Sukumar, you are right in this matter: We Indians know such people as a saint like personality! Few people recognise such a person as a wise person!

I have been able to develope that quality more and more of not getting upset and angry at situations. It really does little good and is not conductive to getting results. It is really a matter of seeing the situation as something you might not be able to control and therefore no amount of ranting will fix the problem. It takes a great effort to see that anger serves no purpose and many of the things we let upset us are so minor that it hardly makes sense to let them destroy our good moods.

that is very true, all of us are human and when things hurt or makes us angry they do, but we can work through these feelings and heal. Writing is a great way to work through feelings of anger etc.

I can not say I have made that point as of yet. I would not call it nobleness when you are able to stop or not get angry over certain situations. I think it shows a lack of empothy and emotion. I do know our leaders put on a front where going in front of the people to tell us things. But behind close doors, they cry just like the rest of us.

For some time I seemed to have this ability. However I've lost it to great extent. I have realised that in general if major things in life like your primary duties, your income etc. are in place then your other abilities also take shape. But if nothing is going right, it affects you more an you lose more.

I forgot to mention, that the ability you're talking of is called as being "imperturbable".

It is an annoying experience to be in that kind of a situation but I can pretty much handle anything that comes my way.

I teach myself to do this since I open a small shop. I know I have to go on and there is no way around it, this is what makes me learn to accept what I can't change. By accepting the change doesn't mean we give up, so there is nothing wrong with that.
