"I can't choose what someone else says or does.
I can only choose my actions and how I react to theirs.
I choose whether or not I give someone the power to affect me, to control me.
It's my choice to choose to be happy or sad.
I choose how I look at the world.
Bad things happen to good people.
Others make choices that affect me.
How I react to all that is my choice!
And I choose to be happy!"
