Here is some help for the first part, where you had the important errors:
The best advice I have received was the advice from my mom, who said, "everything thing happens for good." My mother's advice was so true and applicable . It gave me hope when bad things happened to me or things don't turn out the way I wanted them, that perhaps it was is for a reason. I followed it also because through out my life it was easy to find situations where I could get upset.
Since I was a little girl I heard my mom say, "Everything happens for Good." I heard her say it both for the good and the bad things that happened. hearing her telling me this when she saw me upset made me put it in my mind and apply it in my everyday life. Finding myself angry in some situations, such as being mad when I missed the bus or being rejected by a friend; I remember always getting mad at myself, other people or even God.
The counsel that I got from my mother was enhanced when I connected it with what I read in the New Testament, "Give thanks in all circumstances."
