As I grow older, I have learned to shift many of the setbacks in my life to what I call My Dodged Bullets List.
When the events happened, of course, there was pain, anger, embarrassment or frustration. I cannot pretend otherwise.
Time, however, has brought perspective. Now I find myself saying, "Thank God I didn't get stuck with that!"
If you don't have such a list, I strongly recommend starting one.
You may need several pages.
