Your ability to deal with difficulties, learn from them, and move on, determines whether you thrive or merely survive. To make matters worse, instead of protecting you, cynicism can actually attract the people and situations that seem to confirm your belief that life is a cruel joke.

Without recognizing it, you seek out people and experiences that mirror your views. So your Facebook feed gets filled with tales of warning and your ears perk up at news stories that fuel your fears. You find evidence of a dark, foreboding world everywhere you turn.
