Hello everyone. I have found a great deal of peace through the Dhamma, and it has had a remarkable impact on my ability to deal with the stresses of daily life.
My girlfriend, unfortunately, has quite a bit of difficulty with stress. Setbacks during the day (traffic, interruptions of routine, events beyond our control) have a huge effect on her, sometimes driving her to tears. She recently mentioned that she admired my ability to take these things in stride, and I asked if she would be willing to listen to a Dhamma talk or read something that might explain my perspective on these things.
Does anyone have a favorite Dhamma talk or some relatively short piece of writing that takes on this subject? She comes from a fairly strict Christian background, and while she doesn't practice any longer and is very open-minded, I don't think she is in a place where she'd be willing to practice meditation. Listening to a talk or two is about as close as I can get to sharing the Dhamma with her, which is fine. If anyone has an recommendations I'd love to hear them.
