The biggest mind-blowing, eye-opening life realization is that we actually assign meaning to what happens to us. And the meanings we assign are always a choice. It’s usually not what happens to us that hurts us but rather the meanings we assign. 

He didn’t call me back is a fact. He didn’t call me back because I’m not pretty is an assigned meaning.  

You want enlightenment? Stop caring about the reasons people do or don’t do things. I’m not that interested in why he didn’t call you back. That’s his business and his story. I’m much more interested in the meanings you assign to the things that have happened to you.
