Do you need medicine to be healthy? Medicine is only necessary when one is ill. If you aren’t sick, you don’t need a prescription which means you’re healthy.

In the same way, if you aren’t suffering, it means happiness is already with you.

First and foremost, don’t hurt yourself. If your parents fight, that’s their business. Don’t make it yours. Don’t make yourself unhappy by getting swept up in someone else’s business.

Consider your happiness first and then your family’s.
